Celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities

The College has prioritised the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion and celebrates key events relating to its four key focus areas of race, sex, sexuality and disability.

On this important day, we are taking this opportunity to celebrate the remarkable achievements of some of our members who have shared their inspirational stories of living with a disability, overcoming adversity and breaking down barriers.

This includes an interview with, and blog post by, Dr Onikepe Ijete - a Specialty Doctor in Forensic Psychiatry who lives with a disability. We also hear from the RCPsych Autism Champion, Conor Davidson, who shares his experiences and insights into supporting patients with autism. Find out more by exploring the links below:
