Dr Barreto Visits Health and Social Care Students

Health and Social Care students welcomed a visit from Doctor Barreto on 7th April 2017 to give a lecture on mental illness, diagnosis and treatments.

Doctor Barreto works in psychiatry at Penn hospital and came into school along with a psychiatric nurse to give a lecture on working in the psychiatric profession.

Students from Year 12 and Year 13 were given specialist information on subject related topics including Schizophrenia, Dementia, Bipolar and a selection of other common mental illnesses. Sunita, a psychiatric nurse in the community, also spoke about career pathways and her role working within the community.

We would like to thank both Dr. Barreto and Sunita for their visit.
