Title: Reality – what is it?

 

Event Date: 10 October 2016

 

Time: 16:00-17:00

 

Speaker: Angus Campbell. Lord Lieutenant of Dorset, Patron for Dorset Mind, Patron for Acts Fast

 

Venue: Cobham Lecture Theatre, Talbot Campus

 

Description

 

The title of this talk may sound strangely philosophical – possibly verging on esoteric.  However, Angus’ experience with mental illness in both the young and the old has, among other things, been the need to understand the titanic struggle involved in those individuals trying to make sense of, and come to terms with, a world that has no rules or stability. Most of us understand them to exist in our own more ordered world – their ‘reality’ can be so very different. The talk will focus on Angus’ experience on this journey and how that may be useful to others in the same position. He hopes that there may be a message in there for professionals about the difficulties that family member carers have when they seem to be pushed aside as treatment is being considered.

 

Speaker Biography 

 

Angus Campbell was raised in North Dorset.  Educated in Dorset and Devon, Angus emigrated to New Zealand in 1970 to work for the Auckland Herd Improvement Association at the age of 20 and gained his Private Pilot Licence whilst working in that country. He was Commissioned into the Army as one of the first direct-entry Army Air Corps Pilots and served in West Germany, United Nations Cyprus, Northern Ireland, Canada and finally as Second in Command of 16 Flight Army Air Corps in Cyprus before retiring at the end of his Short Service Commission.  He continued as a Territorial Army Pilot until 1982. On retiring from the Army, Angus returned to the family farm in North Dorset. At this time, he entered local politics and has held several senior positions, including leader of North Dorset District Council and Leader for Dorset County Council.  In 2013 Angus stood down from local politics. In January 2014 Angus Campbell was appointed by The Queen to represent Her Majesty as Lord-Lieutenant of Dorset.
