Images of psychiatry - listening to voices DVD

Promoting understanding of mental health issues and psychiatry is a core element of the College’s public education responsibility. The Images of Psychiatry campaign builds on the successful work of the Partners in Care and Changing Minds campaigns to ensure that service user and carer issues, and the fight against stigma, continue to be priorities for the College.

The Listening to Voices DVD is a resource for trainee psychiatrists and their trainers, and other members of the multidisciplinary team. The film takes you through the patients' and carers' journey - from first contact with psychiatric services to recovery and coping - with examples of people's personal experiences at each stage.
