We announced the winners of this year’s Royal College of Psychiatrists Awards this afternoon (7 November) and presented each with a trophy.

The College hosted the ceremony - now in its tenth year - at its own home in Prescot Street in the shadow of the Tower of London. Some 300 guests working in psychiatry and mental health attended.

Judges were hugely impressed by this year’s quality of entries received for each category of the award.
