Outstanding Success for Mental Health

Congratulations to the NHS Forth Valley mental health nurse therapist team from Behavioural Psychotherapy who are celebrating a clutch of successes at the Scottish Mental Health Nursing Forum awards, including becoming one of the two overall winners.

Aimee Kidd and Linda Crothers picked up the Covid-19 Wellbeing Award. The pair say that the past two years have really highlighted the importance of staff wellbeing and bringing moments of joy into the workplace has certainly enhanced the feel-good factor.

The Behavioural Psychotherapy staff team nominated their manager Linda McAuslan for the Colleague of the Year Award due to her exemplary leadership, emotional support, continued connection and sensitive attunement to the physical and emotional needs of the team over the past 18 plus months.

“I feel so very humbled and honoured to have been nominated” said Linda, after learning of her win.

But the biggest prize of all went to a fantastic partnership programme between Behavioural Psychotherapy, The Meadows and RLP (Resilience Learning Partnership) which is developing trauma responsive cervical screening for women affected by sexual violence.

The team commented: “We are all delighted that such an amazing project won Innovations in Improving Physical Health and Wellbeing as well as one of the two overall winners at the Mental Health Nursing Forum Awards.”
