My name is Susan Munro and I am a Speech & Language Therapist working in north-east Scotland. In 2008 I was given the challenge of setting up a Speech & Language Therapy service for individuals who access General Adult Psychiatry services across Tayside. We now have a service that is going from strength to strength but Tayside is a rarity and there are still very few Speech & Language Therapists working in the field of adult mental health.
The purpose of mentalhealthslt is to share my experiences not only with other Speech & Language Therapists but with anyone who works in or has an interest in mental health. Good communication is crucial in achieving and maintaining mental well being so don’t forget about Speech & Language Therapists.
