The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

Past campaigns

Fair Deal

This Royal College of Psychiatrists' 3-year campaign was dedicated to addressing the inequalities that people with mental health problems encounter daily in terms of their health, life chances, and inclusion. The campaign was founded on the views of psychiatrists, and service users and carers, and covered eight priorities areas.  It involved public affairs and Fair Dealcommunications work to raise awareness of the Fair Deal priorities among politicians, in the media, and among the general public, and partnership work with voluntary sector organisations and other healthcare professionals on individual projects and specific campaigns over the 3 year period.

Images of Psychiatry

This campaign aims to raise awareness amongst young people of mental health issues and of psychiatry, to reduce the stigma associated with mental health problems and to ensure user and carer issues are core to psychiatry, both in training and in day-to-day practice.

Additionally, it aims to increase the number of UK medical students choosing psychiatry as their first choice career to 10%.
