Open Minds CPD

Welcome to Open Minds CPD, a brand new initiative from the Mental Health Nursing & Counselling team here at Abertay. We look at a diverse range of mental health topics and include a combination of specialist speakers as well as our own mental health and counselling experts.

These workshops and CPD events are designed to give you and your team a deeper understanding of mental health issues, how they impact on us and - most importantly - how to tackle the challenges they bring.
