summary of discussions – SLaM service user and carer advisory groups for mood, anxiety & personality disorder services, and emergency access, complex care and clinical neurosciencesPosted: April 2, 2014
Hello all, The departments that manage the services at South London & Maudsely NHS Foundation Trust have ‘advisory groups’ where service users and carers come together to advise on and discuss developments. 2 of these groups produce a brief summary of their discussions. The purpose is to let interested people know what is being discussed. I have attached the summaries from the March meetings.
Please circulate as appropriate.
With best wishes,

Invitation to see:
Art Leads to External Places By George Harding Opening 5 December, 5 – 8pm
Maudsley Long Gallery
The inaugural exhibition, by artist George Harding, centres on art’s ability to transport the individual. His work obscures and transcends the boundaries between reality, imagination and dreams. Harding’s painting Alignment, now in the Bethlem Museum’s collection, became iconic within the history of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust when it was used for the Trust’s Arts Strategy, and subsequently reached global audiences on the front cover of a Lancet publication in 2011.
Maudsley Long Gallery was established in 2013 following a grant from the Maudsley Charity. The gallery space uses a reclaimed staff corridor that was previously locked and unused. The space is now open to the everyone. Please enter at the main reception and head past the Sanctuary, where the new Long Gallery is located leading to the Dining room (parallel to the main corridor).
Exhibition continues 6 December 2013 – 31 January 2014
Monday – Sunday, 9am – 8pm
The Long Gallery
020 3228 2830
Please note: The Long Gallery team meet annually (in July) to plan exhibitions for the following year. There are four exhibitions a year. We tend to prioritise SLaM service user art however we take applications from everyone. Applications to exhibit can be made by email to: email@example.com
HIP HOP PSYCH
21st November 2013, 7pm – 9pm. ORTUS learning & events centre, 82-96 Grove Lane, Denmark Hill, London, SE5 8SN
Co-Founded by Dr Akeem Sule & Dr Becky Inkster
“Demystifying mental illness through authentic beats and lyrics”
Hip-hop culture is a powerful vehicle for raising awareness about mental health. It is rich with references to psychiatric illnesses that have not been explored, dissected and documented until now. HIP HOP PSYCH, co-founded by Dr Akeem Sule & Dr Becky Inkster, is the interface that links hip-hop with mental health. Their medical credibility and authentic passion for hip-hop enables them to bridge this gap. They understand the culture, speak the language and want to share their knowledge in order to cultivate awareness and remove stigma surrounding mental health and hip-hop.
Although the lyrics of hip hop music are often associated with swearing, rapping about money and the exploitation of women, there are also rappers whose unfiltered narration goes beyond this by describing the harsh realities of their world and the coping mechanisms employed by some young people. The music can be rich with references, for example, to addiction, psychosis, bipolar disorder and the effects of urbanicity, poor nutrition and destructive parental influences relating to childhood maltreatment in the absence of positive role models.
For this event, HIP HOP PSYCH Co-Founders Dr Akeem Sule & Dr Becky Inkster will be focusing on dissecting and analysing a range of hip hop lyrics from different artists – such as Eminem, Tupac, Kendrick Lamar and J Cole – in order to demystify mental health. In doing this they seek to disarm the boundaries between psychiatry, the humanities and hip-hop culture. Their approach enables them to gain a deeper awareness into gang culture and allows them to get closer to the reality of the daily struggles and risk factors which people with mental health problems face.
The event will also feature a special performance by Key Changes. Key Changes provides music engagement and recovery services for young people and adults experiencing severe mental illnesses including psychosis, schizophrenia, bi polar and personality disorders. Their innovative approach draws on clinical therapeutic techniques and uses culturally relevant music activities and genres.
