Equality, diversity and inclusion

The College is opposed to all forms of prejudice and believes that everyone should be treated fairly regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership status, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.

We are committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion for our existing and future members, associates, affiliates, staff and visitors in all our practices and arrangements. We actively advocate for, and support, equality of access, experience and outcomes for all College staff, all members and for all mental health patients and carers.

Our equality initiative is jointly chaired by our President, Adrian James and our CEO, Paul Rees. Two Presidential Leads, Dr Shubulade Smith CBE and Dr Rajesh Mohan, have been appointed to support this work.
