Connected Child Health
Physical and Mental Health in Young People
I am Dr Rory Conn, a consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist working in Exeter, Devon. I work principally in Liaison Psychiatry – at the interface of physical and mental health. About half of my time is hospital based at the Royal Devon and Exeter in Paediatrics, and half in ‘CAMHS’. I see a small number of patients privately.
I am an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Exeter University Medical School, where I am Undergraduate Lead for Psychiatry.
My particular areas of clinical interest include anxiety and depression, somatoform disorders, tics and Tourette’s syndrome, risk management and Eating Disorders.
Through this website you can learn more about these subjects and also about teaching and training in psychiatry, media representations of mental illness, public education and health policy.
I’ve tried to gather helpful resources here for clinicians, patients and families alike.
