Sustainability scholars are advanced trainees in psychiatry who use their special interest day each week to work with the RCPsych Sustainability and Planetary Health Committee for a period of one year.
This is a programme aimed at developing high achieving trainees knowledge and skills in leadership and sustainable quality improvement. Scholars get a dedicated study budget for their project and training and mentoring throughout the year.
Meet our Sustainability scholars
Dr Rosa Roberts
As a Green Scholar, Rosa would like to forge more links between the psychiatry services in her area and Green Care providers, to undertake training in facilitating climate cafes, and to continue her research into developing nature based interventions. She hopes to learn from others in the Committee about how best to inform and educate on these topics by inspiring hope and excitement for the future.
