Pamela Taylor CBE

Pamela Taylor, CBE, is a professor of forensic psychiatry in the School of Medicine, Cardiff University, and has worked clinically at all levels of secure hospital care and in the community.

Her main research has been into associations between mental disorder and violence and into mental disorders among prisoners.

She has strong international links – problems in the field are similar, but solutions differ and we can learn so much from each other.

She has a number of lines of work with the Royal College of Psychiatrists and is leading College support for community alternatives to imprisonment for people with mental disorder whose offending is related to that.

She is Editor-in-Chief of the journal “Criminal Behaviour and Mental Health”.
