Black History Month

At the College, we celebrate Black History Month. As part of this, it's important to recognise and celebrate the diverse past, present and future of the College. 

During Black History Month, we will use this page to mark the contribution of some of our Black psychiatrists to mental health services and will use the occasion to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black people to society.
