Return to Mental Health Matters


BrumIn Birmingham I was delighted to join the local branch of the Royal College of Nursing to celebrate International Nurses’ Day. I visited the Mother and Baby Unit and heard from clinicians and service users about the important work that happens there. At the Graduate School I discussed with postgraduate students the mental health issues in higher education, as well as research projects they are working on. Finally, I spent the evening with the Birmingham Salon at the Chamber of Commerce for a panel discussion on whether the crisis in our nation’s mental health is too much for the NHS.
