World Mental Health Day

Please help raise awareness of emotional well-being today on social media and in conversations, as it is World Mental Health Day, with the theme 'schizophrenia'. The Clinical Psychology Department is tweeting away; please read and re-tweet and help us get the messages out!

The Clinical Psychology course twitter feed is @ClinPsyD_Hull and my personal one is @Schlosspsych. We are highlighting issues of diagnosis, understanding emotional and relational difficulties, and how to respond to those. In the face of the election messages about more (unrealistic?) funding for mental health, it is all very topical. Let's break down stigma and challenge some assumptions about mental health and wellbeing!

Thanks for your support!
