ISPS UK is recruiting Trustees to join its Board

ISPS UK promotes psychological and social approaches to psychosis. We provide a place where professionals, people with lived experience of psychosis, family members and carers can share their ideas, hopes and struggles, and can examine their differences in constructive dialogue and debate. Our work includes organising national and regional conferences and workshops on key issues, supporting the development of local groups and special interest groups and promoting good practice in psychological approaches to psychosis. With many believing mental health services to be in crisis it is a particularly exciting and interesting time to join ISPS as more and more demands are made for alternatives to the traditional model of health care.

If you are passionate about creating a paradigm shift in how we understand and treat psychosis, developing new understandings of social perspectives of psychosis and can spare a half day a month, please consider joining us.

To apply to be a Trustee, please download our Trustee recruitment pack and send a CV and a covering letter to admin@ispsuk.org, by no later than 10 May.  Interviews will take place on 24 May 2019 in London.

For an informal conversation about the role or organisation, please email us to arrange a chat with John Richardson.
