My Work With MHFE

I first saw a link to the MHFE virtual secondees project on the NSUN (that’s National Survivor User Network) mailing and was really interested. I am a mental health service user, but had 6 years experience teaching in FE and HE. Funnily enough, I think it was the stress of this work that pushed me to breaking point!

Virtual secondees to MHFE wanted. Apply now.

Remember when regional mental health network meetings and  other events meant you got regular  time out to find out what was going on, keep up to date with news, share and learn about good practice and were able to discuss issues freely with other people with an interest  in mental health and learning? Well, as a virtual secondee to MHFE those days could be back - the only catch is this time you'll be responsible for making things happen and doing it all online!
