The College of Psychiatrists has many commitments in training, professional competence and public awareness. A considerable amount of work is achieved annually through its faculties and committees.
In 2012 the College began to focus some of that work annually under a theme beginning with Homelessness and Mental Illness. The aim of carrying out some activities, education and discussion under a theme is to improve the public and members’ awareness of the topic, to encourage greater collaborative working between the different faculties and committees, and to use members’ expertise in order to bring about effective changes within the mental health services.
ll faculties and committees within the College are encouraged to take part in activities and papers throughout the year.
