Nisha Dogra is Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry Education and Honorary Consultant in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Greenwood Institute of Child Health, University of Leicester.

She was until recently working as a generic child and adolescent psychiatrist. Her research in child mental health has included identifying how young people define mental health and mental illness. She and colleagues have also explored how young people understand mental health in the context of wider health and mental health promotion. Currently their work is focused on how young people see the relationship between mental health and social media.

Nisha has been involved in the development and delivery of a wide variety of teaching and training events in undergraduate and postgraduate education, locally, nationally and internationally in both psychiatry and diversity. Nisha piloted mental health awareness training for university staff and has also undertaken mental health awareness training for secondary school teachers. Nisha has led innovations in how medical students can be taught diversity to ensure they deliver high quality care to a range of patients and understand how their own perspectives may influence the care they provide.

She has been published widely including peer reviewed publications, edited and written books as well as writing many chapters for books edited by colleagues related to psychiatry and education. In 2011 she was runner up for the Times Higher Education Award for Innovative Teacher of the Year.
