Recognition of MBE by my University King’s College London
I was really chuffed to discover that the King’s College London, where I gained an MSc in Mental Health Studies, in the department known as the Institute of Psychiatry, acknowledged the MBE award I received in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
In a page titled ‘Celebrating alumni recognised in the Queen’s birthday honours list’ I am listed along with alongside a diverse range of esteemed alumni who also received an honour. Click the link below to have a look.
I very much enjoyed the two years I spent there as a part time Masters student, and made some lifelong friends. The quality of teaching was excellent and I was fortunate to learn from some of the best in the field of Mental Health. I still regularly use the research skills I gained in my current work, and the ability to write research reports. Most invaluable was the theoretical grounding I gained in Mental Health, which coupled with my experience of working with people facing mental and social challenges, during my career has provided me the tools and insights to design services for vulnerable people in a range of settings.
Thank you KCL for being a wonderful place of learning and for celebrating the recognition I received in the Queen’s Birthday Honours (2018).
