Introduction to Strategic Communications

Our department supports the College and its officers to deliver on its mission to improve the lives of people with mental illness.

As part of this remit, we can also help you communicate with policy makers, the media or with the other College members.

See our Induction pack for College chairs and leads (member login required) to make you aware of what we do, but also what we can do for you in terms of help, support and advice.

Also see, Practical advice on working with the media.
