Professor Angela Hassiotis wins international research award

A Consultant Psychiatrist at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust has won a prestigious international award for her commitment to mental health research.
Professor Angela Hassiotis, who works within our Camden Learning Disability Service, will be presented the Steven Reiss Research Award at The NADD virtual award ceremony on Friday 30 October.  
The NADD is a US based association of clinicians and scientists with the mission of supporting people with intellectual and developmental disorders through training, education, research and advocacy. The Steven Reiss Research award is for an individual who makes significant scientific contributions in applied research and who has demonstrated international impact and engagement with stakeholders including people with lived experience of developmental disorders. 
Professor Hassiotis said: “I am extremely pleased to have won this award, which is named after a pioneering researcher who showed how often mental ill health in people with developmental disorders remains undiagnosed and untreated - coining the term ‘diagnostic overshadowing’. 
“I continue to remain committed to advancing our understanding of mental ill health in this population and to inspire our trainees to develop an equitable and inclusive practice to improve care standards for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.”
