Laura’s Story

Laura’s story was co-produced with a service user and describes her journey with mental health difficulties and psychosis, through her recovery with the support of rehabilitation services.

Where an individual has gained a CCT without rehabilitation accreditation they may apply to the Faculty for recognition of competency in this field. The Specialist Advisory Committee Chairman will work with the Regional Representative on how and whether this can be granted. There is no legal process to add accreditations to existing CCTs but this will attest to rights to be accepted as a trainer in rehabilitation and may help with appointments committees. In such cases a letter that supports the person's competency in rehabilitation psychiatry can be provided by the Faculty Chair.  For further information contact Stella Galea, Faculty & Committee Manager on stella.galea@rcpsych.ac.uk .
