Professor Stephen Platt

Professor Stephen Platt is Professor of Health Policy Research in the Centre for Population Health Sciences at the University of Edinburgh. For over 30 years he has maintained a research interest in epidemiological, social and cultural aspects of suicidal behaviour, and has been particularly concerned with the influence of labour market conditions (and related inequalities) on the incidence of suicide and deliberate self-harm. More recently, his research interests have expanded to include: the effect of adverse housing and living conditions on physical and psychological health; the health impact of organisational change and restructuring; evaluation of complex interventions for health improvement and the reduction of health inequalities; smoking-related inequalities and socio-economic disadvantage; and policy analysis relating to public (mental) health.
