MHNAUK meeting at Teesside University

This afternoon I’m off to Darlington (a place I’ve never visited before) ahead of tomorrow’s Mental Health Nurse Academics UK (MHNAUK) meeting. As a reminder, MHNAUK’s website can be found here, and its blog can be found here.

This is going to be a considerable train journey (check out the map below), so I’ll be bringing work to be getting on with and plenty of light refreshments. The other thing I’ll be doing en route is catching up with friends and colleagues, where in the course of a normal working week it can be difficult to find time to converse.

The meeting itself is being hosted by Gordon Mitchell from Teesside University, and is being chaired by Michael Coffey. Taken from the MHNAUK website here is the agenda:
