Why Must We Consider The Mental Health and Wellbeing Of Mental Health Professionals?


As part of preparing for my interview at UCL Unit for Stigma Research, I practiced answering this question. This is one of the recordings I did to help me get ready for the day (I find practicing out loud helps!). I briefly talk about:

* background surveys and research

* mental health stigma in general

* the idealisation of the 'always and forever containing' mental health practitioner

* pressures of being in clinical psychology training

* why it's not as simple as just providing a support service

More details on surveys and publications can be found here:

Results of the 5th Annual Survey on Workforce Wellbeing (of psychological practitioners)

I'm delighted to have got the job as Research Fellow at UCLUS, I'll be coordinating good practice guidance from our clinical psychology training courses.

Thank you for listening.
