My Blog post for World Mental Health Day 2015

On October the 10th, which was last Saturday.  I took part in a walk with Cooltan Arts for World Mental Health Day 2015.  The theme for WMD 2015 was “Dignity”.  Basically the day is for raising awareness for those suffering mental health problems around the world.


I also did a blog post to support World Mental Health Day 2015


South London & Maudsley Projects – Family & Carer ward views 

Usually I do not feed back Academic Group updates, but as a member of the Psychology Medicine group.  I am participating with another carer to visit triage wards based in Lewisham, Lambeth & Croydon to get Family & carer views on how SLaM wards are for visiting their loved ones.

Feedback will be sent to senior SLaM staff for auditing.
