#in2gr8Elevenses is live on Twitter @in2gr8mh on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11am ☕ I will keep this blog updated with links to the episodes and their content.

Dr Natalie Kemp (Twitter @kempspace) talks from the world of the lived experience mental health professional in current Covid19 times.

If you've got a break, need a break, need to demand a break, feel your whole day is one big break, want to discuss the grit or the good...join live with your cuppa/coffee & favourite biscuits.

If you are listening afterwards, use the hashtag #in2gr8Elevenses to comment, I'll be tracking it and will follow up in the next broadcast.

If you are an NHS member of staff, be a guest with your cuppa and discuss how things are for you and where you are working (audio only on your side and it remains permanent on social media).
