Topic: Writer in Residence

Our writer-in-residence programme launched in January 2019, and aims to support new and existing writers with an interest and experience in mental health to share their knowledge, create new ideas and offer their thoughts on a broad range of issues.

Over time, the Centre hopes to offer a platform to more writers with a diverse range of experiences, ideas and perspectives and reach out to more people to debate about mental health in society.
