Wider professional interests

Phase 2 of a project with University of Dundee Archives (with Caroline Brown, archivist) is about to get underway – based on a project run by Norfolk Archives (Changing Minds) this project brings those with lived experience of mental health issues to the archives together to access archive materials and create their own legacy to deposit within the university’s mental health archive.

#OneProfessionManyStories – this joint project with NHS Tayside was led by Jacqueline Eccles and Yasmin Worrall.  Working with Dundee-based 81 films, 6 videos were produced with the aim of highlighting Mental Health Nursing as a profession.
