So what’s happening in June? Well first up we have our Volunteer and Involvement open day on Tuesday 2 June which will showcase volunteering opportunities and some of the projects we are running. Things like getting involved in interviewing, gathering feedback and volunteering on wards and how we support and provide training for this. We will also be showing two films we’ve recently made about The Story Shop and Challenging Your Mental Health Section, so popcorn at the ready.
The rest of the month we have our newly formed Comms Meeting, the Ideal Ward Round project written about elsewhere on this blog, volunteers going along to Prospect House and talking to patients in a Forensic setting as well as the Tuesday Meeting every week from 1pm to 3pm.
The centre is getting busier and new projects are starting up around reviewing the complaints procedure for the Trust, so plenty to keep us busy.
Volunteers are also out and about this month, staring in a film to educate student mental health nurses about what it’s like on a mental health ward and taking part in interviews for new staff in the pharmacy, and lots more.
