‘Finding my Hard Hat’: Reflections of recovery from a service user and caring professional
Gary Kiernan, Gráinne Donohoe, Shane Kirwan
Gary Kiernan of our Service User and Supporter Council (SUAS) wrote an article published by the Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. The article shares Gary's lived experience of mental health recovery. It is hoped that the article sheds light on accessing mental health services, and that some insights shared may help people in the nursing or social care professions consider how they may be affected by their work.
