A Day in the Life Of...Mental Health Support

23 Nov 2021 17:30 - 19:00



Join us on Nursing Support Workers Day to hear from mental health support staff about their experiences of providing care.

Earlier this year, we heard from nursing support workers in hospitals and community care in moving interviews about their experiences of the COVID-19 Pandemic. However, what have things been like for mental health support workers over the last two years?

Linked to our series recording nursing experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will hear direct from mental health support workers around the UK about what a day in their life involves.

The event will be introduced by Richard Griffin, Professor of Healthcare Management at Kings Business School, Kings College London.
