Woohoo! First it was a joke that was taken seriously only in the post-psychiatry movement. Now it’s a mainstream opinion. Soon the only discussion will be how anyone could ever have believed in the syndrome of schizophrenia.
One of the things I’ve missed the most about my new role is the lack of public speaking engagements. I just love speaking at conferences. The price of entering a corporate world is that it’s hard to be an individual (at least at first).
That was the bad news …. now the good ….
This afternoon I spoke with my line manager, the divisional head of quality. We spoke about a range of things including conference speaking and he’s agreed that I can start representing the company publically. I can speak at conferences again.
So this is me letting you all know that I’m available to speak once more. If you want someone to witter on about mental health and social care related issues then I’m your man. Please get in touch via my work email: email@example.com
For the record then, my new role (well newish) is Quality Development Lead (mental health) for a large, nationwide social care provider. My role entails several functions including:
Devising and impementing a long-term mental health strategy throughout the company;
Training and supporting staff to implement the strategy;
Ensuring quality throughout the company;
Advising upon and dealing with mental health related issues throughout the division.
The company is a national organisation covering the whole of UK so wherever you are in the British Isles I’ll have something to say to you and your delegates.
I’m experienced in a wide range of mental health and social care related topics and am also very happy to run workshops and speak in panel sessions. I’m a pretty good networker too.
Go on – get in touch. you know you want to!
