Social Media

You may have heard that in a few weeks’ time the SLaM TWIG Ops social media accounts will be moving to a new home. The accounts will be here for a while yet but once they’re gone you’ll be able to continue following news and views about South London and Maudsley (SLaM) and its services at @maudsleynhs and facebook.com/slamnhs. They are moving to become part of SLaM’s thriving online community – alongside more than 8,000 service users, patients, staff and the public. You can continue to send your information, updates and opinions to a contact who will share your posting with this wider audience and of course you’ll be able to make posts yourself if you are already on twitter or facebook. We hope that TWIG Ops followers will join us, create debate and help to raise awareness of mental health issues locally and beyond.

The TWIG Ops team will be working with us to help with the transition phase and will also make some improvements to our website www.slam.nhs.uk that will provide new information and resources for anyone who wants to get involved with the Trust and find out about local events run by other organisations, news and issues relating to mental health. The TWIG Ops team will keep you updated and will post here with updates during the transition.

Best wishes

Sarah Crack

Head of Communications and Media SLaM

Lambeth BME “Health and Wellbeing” Event – 3 May 2014

Matthew Mckenzie was at the Karibu educational centre in the London borough of Lambeth Brixton on 3rd May 2014 to attend the “Health and Well-being Event” run by the Africa Advocacy Foundation & the Community Therapies and Training Services. With help from the Rafiki Project and Safer.

The event featured discussions, presentations and art exhibitions plus poetry. The event was educational and informative on a range of health topics being mental health, HIV and Female Genital Mutilation. Plus there was a ground breaking theatre in Education performance by a group of young actors titled “Are you positive?”

Matthew has done  great audio and video blogs of the event.   They are  very informative and the plays and poetry are so very moving.   Well worth watching and listening to!
