Re: Careers in maternal mental health?

Hello

Perinatal Mental Health services strikes me as being the most linked service. They tend to employ a number of different professionals including clinical psychologists.

I know there has been a huge amount of investment in this area recently.

Re: number of places versus number of applicants

I wonder if part of the reason cov and Warwick is so high as they give feedback?

So they are a good bet if you have a ‘spare’ course so to speak?

Re: NHS vs Third Sector

If your goal is to get on the Dclin I’d say the biggest advantage to working in the nhs is continuous service. Having recently been of sick I had accrued 5 months full pay and 5 months half pay and I am nearly at the point of increasing my annual leave entitlement etc. Had I started the course with ...

Re: Should I apply??

I know that some courses start in early September so by mid October there teaching block would be over. However, a lot of courses won’t allow teaching days to be taken, however a pre booked holiday may be allowed? Only thing that may also be worth bearing in mind is that when I started due to the ti...

Re: Former inpatient looking for DClin application advice

I must have subconsciously realised I was being mentioned! So I’m a trainee and disclosed my experiences and I have found a mix of opinions on it. I don’t think it’s seen negatively but I am not sure it gives you points so you need the other stuff which you have got by the sounds of things. I think ...

Re: Funding

I thought it had been confirmed for a few years but I can’t find anything beyond people saying 2019s funding was secured so I am not sure of the latest.

Re: Can I make it?

I didn’t have anywhere near the experience you did when I graduated from undergrad and am now a trainee. I know on the very odd occasion people have got on straight from undergrad but I would say the time before the doctorate when you are gaining experience is invaluable and I would in many ways lov...

Re: Help me pick a doctorate course

Salomons, uel, Herts and Lancaster seem to be at one end of the spectrum. Then courses like Liverpool, Bangor, Leeds, Plymouth, Leicester probably fit in next Then lots of courses I don’t have a clue about Then you go to the more researchy ones like iop, Royal Holloway, Manchester etc. All courses h...

I'm first reserve so can post again if/when I hear anything :salut: Does anyone know if Leeds tends to use its reserve list? I know it's one of the later co...

Re: 'Coming out' with a MH history

It’s interesting as a trainee that I feel this is changing a bit as I know several assistants, trainees and newly qualified who are open about having lived experience of some form or other. I’ve been open and have never felt much stigma around within the profession itself and if it has been there I ...
