Dr Nic Yeates

Consultant Psychologist, Child, Family and Young Peoples' Mental Health Service, Norfolk & Suffolk Foundation Trust

Dr Nic Yeates is a consultant psychologist in a specialist Child, Family and Young Peoples’ mental health services within Norfolk & Suffolk Foundation Trust.

Nic previously worked in local authority children’s homes in West Sussex. It was during these years that Nic discovered he wanted to be a psychologist. He is the Clinical Lead at the Compass Centre. The Compass is a therapeutic education service for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, that now has three bases across Norfolk. He mainly explores the beliefs of pupils, parents and staff about Children’s Mental Health services. He hopes that his work will lead to similar provisions being developed in other local authorities nationally.

Nic is also a fellow at the Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC).
