Amelia Arnold BSc MRMed MWHMed
Amelia Arnold is a member of the Women’s Mental Health Team at MAPrc, a position she commenced in October 2016. She coordinates research into the effects of memantine on symptoms of Complex Trauma Disorder (otherwise known as Borderline Personality Disorder), and assists with the conduct of the National Register of Antipsychotic Medications in Pregnancy (NRAMP) with Ms Heather Gilbert. Amelia is also actively engaged in the promotion of the Women’s Mental Health team within the wider community and enjoys fostering working relationships with clinicians and services.
Amelia completed her Bachelor of Science (Psychology/Biomedical Science) at the University of Queensland, and her two Masters degrees in Women’s Health Medicine and Reproductive Medicine at the University of New South Wales. She moved to Melbourne in 2015 to further her career in research, having worked in a large IVF clinic in Brisbane with fertility patients. She also has a niche background in Phase 1 clinical research which is a unique asset to the team. The biological, psychological and social skills Amelia has developed are ideally suited to the intersectionality of research conducted within the Women’s Mental Health team.
Amelia is passionate about psychosocial research and the effects of gender, identity and relationships on mental health outcomes. She is active in her advocacy for marginalised groups in the psychiatric setting, including women and young people, those with comorbid or difficult to treat conditions, culturally and linguistically diverse people, and members of the LGBTIQ+ community.
