Profile

Richard Velleman is Emeritus Professor of Mental Health Research. He is a leading authority on substance misuse, with a special interest in the impact of this misuse on other family members, including children. He is a leading member of the Alcohol, Drugs and the Family research network, and a member of the 15-person Scientific Committee of the EMCDDA (European Monitoring Centre on Drugs and Drug Addiction).

Richard is both a clinical and an academic psychologist. He took his first degree (Experimental Psychology) at Sussex in the early 1970s, trained in clinical psychology at the University of Exeter, and later obtained his PhD at Exeter, before moving to Bath in 1984. He has always held dual posts, in Universities and in the NHS.

His research and practice interests cover a wide spectrum within mental health, with a particular interest in the impact of substance misuse and mental health issues on family members, especially children, as well as broader research and practice interests in counselling, substance misuse, and children & families. He has been awarded grants of more than £4,000,000 over his research career to date, and published over 200 items including thirteen books, and many chapters and scientific journal papers.

Richard has worked in the addictions and mental health fields for over 30 years. In the early 1980s he helped to establish Alcohol Concern, the national alcohol agency in England & Wales; and spearheaded the creation of the hugely popular Volunteer Alcohol Counsellors Training Scheme. In the mid-1980s he set up the non-statutory BADAS (Bath Area Drugs Advisory Service), the first drugs services in the Bath area. In 1994 he became the founding Head first of the Specialist Drug and Alcohol Services in the Bath Mental Health Care NHS Trust, and then also of the Somerset Drug Service. From 1999 to 2004 he was the Director of Strategic Development for the Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust, responsible for most of the Trust’s specialist services (such as Drug & Alcohol, Forensic, Research & Development). He left the Trust Board in 2004 to concentrate once more on his research, writing and clinical work. Over the past 30 years he has worked with many national and international bodies (AERC, NTA, Department of Health, Home Office, Scottish Executive, EMCDDA, EU, etc) and has served as an Expert Witness in many child protection cases relating to parental substance misuse or parental mental health problems.
