We are looking for representatives to inform the work of the Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health (BRC-MH). The BRC-MH is based across the Institute of Psychiatry and SLaM, and is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR). More information about the roles can be found in the attached documents.
We are looking for people who can provide a service user or carer perspective to the BRC programme. We are looking for people with an interest in research, and who are committed to improving biomedical research in mental health.
Further information about the BRC can be found on our website: http://brc.slam.nhs.uk/brc-home
Before we lose the use of your excellent resource please could you let people know about two extra groups Active Minds are currently running:
Our popular cricket group returns for a second summer (we play Street 20 cricket so no great skill or knowledge of the labyrinthine rules of cricket is necessary – just come along)
The Cycling pilot scheme we have been running over the summer has proved very popular so has been extended until the end of September

Do you love running or know someone who does?
We’re looking for people to run, jog or stroll for South London and Maudsley, and help us to provide even more world class care that goes above and beyond. Whatever your level of fitness, we’ve got two great upcoming events that you can take part in.
Royal Parks Half Marathon, 13.1 miles – Sunday 12 October. *Registration closes Wednesday 20 August*
This is one of the most scenic half marathons in the running calendar, taking in some of the best sights of central London. Check out the photos from 2013.
Visit our website for more information. Or, sign up today for just £50, and try to raise £400.
Or, if you’re not ready for a half marathon but still want to get involved, please join us at the first ever Kia Oval 5k Fun Run on Saturday 13 September. Whether you love to run or prefer to stroll, we’re inviting everyone to the official test ground for the England Cricket Team. Visit our website to register and for more information.
*Early bird registration closes Wednesday 13 August and under 16s take part for FREE!*
Do you know someone who’d like to take part in either of these events? If so, please forward this email on. Our events are open to everyone!

Please find attached details of our brand new Image Making course taster session on Thursday July 24th. These courses are for people recovering from mental health problems and cost only £20 a session for people with a personal budget. The course proper begins July 29th and runs on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons for 5 weeks. Students completing the Image Making course at Blackfriars MHWBS have joined our Art2print social enterprise to get hands on work experience of being in a design team. Others have accessed full-time courses. It has helped nearly all to boost their confidence, “ It gave me inspiration to be creative and not to be afraid to try new things”.
