The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

West Midlands Division Mentoring Scheme


The scheme is entirely voluntary and aimed at doctors taking up their first consultant post or those about to take on new responsibilities.   

The mentors are consultant psychiatrists working within the West Midlands who have been consultants for at least 3 years. 

If you would like to become a mentor, you should attend the annual introductory training day / workshop.  CPD workshops are also scheduled throughout the year.

If you are inspired to become a mentor or would like to be put in touch with a mentor, please email Gloria Zachariou your details, or call on 0121 452 5120.

The mentee and mentor should complete the registration form at their initial meeting.


2018 Mentoring Skills Training Workshop

After the success of last year’s event, this year’s Mentoring Skills Training Workshop (for psychiatrists working within the West Midlands who have held a substantive consultant post for at least 3 years) is taking place on Thursday 9 November 2017 at the Birmingham Marriott Hotel, 12 Hagley Road, Five Ways, Birmingham B16 8SJ.  

On behalf of Dr Geoff Marston, West Midlands Division Mentoring Lead, we warmly invite you to this event.

The morning will be aimed at colleagues who are new to mentoring or who wish to refresh their knowledge and skills.  It will include an introduction to the mentorship scheme and national overview; introduce a framework for mentoring and offer time to practice skills development.

The afternoon session aims to further develop mentoring skills, covering aspects of cultural diversity, identifying local support/training resources (including the College co-mentoring support group) and a mix of topics that are relevant to wider mentoring and coaching in the West Midlands/nationally.

There will also be time to discuss issues arising in mentorship.

There is no charge for attendance; lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day. We would encourage those who attend to be able to offer mentoring within the West Midlands scheme and register as mentors.
