Mental Health in Crisis – A perspective from a practitioner and patient


Steven Wood

To mark this year's Mental Health Awareness Week, we hosted a webinar on Tuesday 14 May, where our experts took a look at mental health from the perspective of a practitioner and a patient.

Our Legal Director, Steven Wood, was joined by Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist, Dr Lucy Shaw and Jack Nolan, one of the UK’s youngest Mental Health and Empowerment Speakers, where they explored:

- The technical process of being sectioned from a psychiatrist’s perspective
- A patient’s perspective – a personal experience of being sectioned
- Destigmatising mental health
- Steps you can take to improve your mental health
