A Medicine for Members event to mark World Mental Health Month, Angela Hassiotis, Professor of Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability at UCL’s Division of Psychiatry, will offer her own perspective on supporting people with mental illness.
Angela McNab, chief executive of C&I, will provide her own insight into how society’s perception of mental health and attitudes towards it are changing. Join us at our Medicine for Members event on Thursday 22 September, from 5.30pm.
Artwork from around 30 exhibitors including nurses and patients and depicting themes, thoughts, ideas and feelings related to the “Art of Caring” will be showcased at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I) for three months following a preview this month.
Musicians and artists will contribute to an evening dedicated to highlighting the crucial value of art in the context of mental health recovery and wellbeing as part of C&I’s Medicine for Members programme of events.
We are hosting an employment support day to help our service users find the right job. Join us on Wednesday 27 January 2016 to find out about information on training, in work support, volunteering, employment options and benefits.
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
