Dr. Linda Campbell

Psychologist Linda Campbell

Hi, I’m Linda. I’m a Clinical Psychologist and Associate Professor at the University of Newcastle in Australia. I have more than 20 years of research and clinical experience working with people, across the lifespan, who have been diagnosed with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, their families and broader support network. My research spans from brain imaging to cognition to mental health to the lived experiences of young people and families and has resulted in many scientific articles. In my clinical work, I enjoy helping clients learn more about themselves, to be more present and self-compassionate using strength-based and affirming approaches to engage meaningfully in life. I am also passionate about education that helps families, health care professionals and educators to better understand the 22q11.2DS conditions but also equips them with the knowledge and tools to advocate for themselves effectively. Empowering families, young people, and professionals with accurate information can lead to better self-care, informed decision-making, and improved outcomes. My research, clinical work, and education training are interconnected, each informing and enhancing the other to create a comprehensive and impactful approach.
