Blogs

This page features blogs from around Scotland. If you're a member in Scotland we'd love to publish your update, perhaps on a project you're working on, a recruitment initiative, engagement with the third sector, teaching, training or just day to day working in mental health services in Scotland.

Our Chair will have the final say on which ones we publish.

If you have something that you feel might be of interest to members and would like to write a future blog then please contact Angela Currie at the RCPsych in Scotland.
