25 Women – deadline extended

The deadline has been extended in the Women and Mental Health Special Interest Group’s search for 25 inspirational female members.

The SIG want to mark their 25th anniversary by highlighting the stories of 25 amazing women, who may be members, fellows, affiliates or trainees. They want nominations for people who may be seen as unsung heroes and may not have received recognition or awards, yet are still doing an amazing job.

In a call-out for nominations, the SIG said: “We aim to embrace a whole range of personal attributes and career stages and trajectories.

“We’re especially keen to hear how any personal or professional challenges have been impressively overcome or managed - for example you may be inspired by how a female colleague has been able to return to their career, or has continued to work despite difficulties with health or life outside of work. 

“We hope that these stories will remind us that success has many forms, especially when life outside of work is tough.”  

Nominate yourself or someone else
