This mentoring scheme is entirely voluntary and was originally aimed at doctors taking up their first consultant post or those about to take on new responsibilities. Since November 2018 the scheme has expanded to include SAS grade doctors and senior trainees.

The mentors are predominantly consultant psychiatrists working within the West Midlands who have been consultants for at least 3 years. From Nov 2018, training and inclusion on the register has been extended to include SAS grade doctors and senior trainees.

If you would like to become a mentor, you should attend the annual introductory training day/workshop. CPD workshops are also scheduled throughout the year.

If you are inspired to become a mentor or would like to be put in touch with a mentor, please email or call the division office with your details. The list of mentors is available below.

The mentee and mentor should complete the registration form at their initial meeting.

To suggest improvements to the scheme, please contact the Divisional Leads for Mentoring, Dr Andrew Leahy and Dr Naresh Rasquinha, via the division office.
