The event diary and booking service is only available to students at Durham University. You will need your CIS user name and password to proceed (select 'Browse Events'). The events diary will enable you to see what events are taking place every term and who will be delivering individual events. The majority of events are delivered by employers or the Careers Centre. When you click on a specific event you will access more detailed information about the nature of the event in addition to booking information. Usually you will be able to book a place at an event online but occasionally you may be asked to contact us or an employer directly. Events are very popular and some can be oversubscribed. Consequently we do kindly ask that you attend any events that you have booked a place on; if you are unable to attend, or you decide not to attend, please cancel your booking.
Careers in mental health - Improving Access to Psychological Therapies
Talking Changes is part of the national IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) programme. This is an initiative designed to improve access to psychological therapy services for anyone experiencing conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, OCD and stress. Talking Changes is specifically for those living in County Durham or Darlington who are over the age of 16 and it is part of the primary (community) care provision in the region. Similar organizations exist across the UK.
Martin Armitage is the operational director for Talking Changes. He has kindly agreed to speak about the organization and potential career opportunities for graduates.
This session is appropriate to psychology students but also students from other disciplines who have an interest in careers related to mental health.
