GMMH Occupational Therapists are celebrating OT Week 2018

Occupational therapists from GMMH are getting out and about to raise the profile of their profession which supports people to ‘live life their way’ despite any health or care needs they may be living with. The activity is part of this year’s Occupational Therapy Week, organised by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT).

Taking place from 5 – 11 November the theme of Occupational Therapy Week this year is “Securing the future of occupational therapy”. Occupational Therapy Week is a yearly celebration of the occupational therapy profession. It is an opportunity for occupational therapists to be loud and proud; and also encourage other people who have benefited from occupational therapy to tell the difference it has made in their lives.

This year, the theme of the campaign is 'Securing the future of occupational therapy', one of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists pledges as part of their key strategic intentions for the next five years. As such, the RCOT need OTs to work with them in delivering this strategic intention by pledging your support, and helping to show how we can secure the future of the OT beloved profession.

Occupational Therapists in GMMH work in all areas of mental health,  providing our service users with the opportunity to explore and connect their personal values with how they live their lives and the psychological and social support to make the positive changes necessary as employees, students, volunteers and community members.

Jane Lee, Lead OT for Manchester, said: “‘Occupational Therapists provide the space and opportunity for people to explore and connect their personal values with how they live their lives and the psychological and social support to make the positive changes necessary.”

We invite all staff to join us this year by taking a step or two outside your own comfort zone towards achieving a personal aspiration. Pledge here!
