Michelle Cook MSc

Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing


I am a mental health nurse by background and have worked within Psychiatric Intensive care services and acute inpatient services. I have an interest in the management of violence and aggression both towards staff and service users- but with a particular interest in staff debrief and support following such incidents of violence and aggression, and its impact on therapeutic relationships and trauma experiences.


I have worked at Sheffield Hallam university since 2020 starting at what was the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am currently an academic advisor for a number of students across the BSC and MSc courses. I work into a range of modules and courses. I have recently been appointed as the year 2 cohort lead for the masters nursing courses - Adult and Mental health.

I am module lead for one of the researching for practice iterations at distance learning and the Perinatal mental health and the family module.
