Mental Health Twitter Book Group

General information

The College recently launched a new Twitter-based book group RCPsychReads, which aims to bring people together to discuss books and their insight into mental health issues.

Anyone is welcome to join, all you need is an interest in mental health and a passion for reading! The group will meet once a month online for a scheduled Twitter chat, which you can follow and join using #VoteReadTweet.

Anyone can suggest books and we will run a monthly poll to decide what we will be reading next.

Our next meeting

The results of the poll are in and the winner for our next book is:

This is Going To Hurt: Secret Diaries of a Junior Doctor – Adam Kay

Adam Kay was a junior doctor from 2004 until 2010 before a devastating experience on a ward caused him to reconsider his future. He kept a diary throughout his training, and This Is Going to Hurt intersperses tales from the front line of the NHS with reflections on the current crisis. The result is a first-hand account of life as a junior doctor in all its joy, pain, sacrifice and maddening bureaucracy, and a love letter to those who might at any moment be holding our lives in their hands.

We will be meeting between 7-8 pm on 9 May.

If you have any thoughts or recommendations for books, please get in touch!
