About this event

Burnout in mental health services: Abdullah Mia and Matthew Broome, in conversation (19.00-20.00)

The pandemic has created the conditions for burnout, exhaustion and moral injury to thrive in mental health services. Against an existing backdrop of cuts, Covid-19 has put intense pressure on health services, including through the reallocation of resources. Over the past two years, secondary and specialist mental health services have often found themselves sidelined and under-resourced. People who experience psychosis have not always been able to access support, and some have found themselves actively neglected. Mental health practitioners have been both overstretched, and acutely aware of the limits of the support they are able to provide.

This conversation will explore the burnout experienced by many mental health practitioners through the lens of moral injury, where people have engaged in, failed to prevent, or witnessed acts that conflict with their values or beliefs. How has the pandemic affected practitioners and teams in secondary and specialist mental health services? How have the conversations generated by Black Lives Matter impacted on racialised people in the sector?

A one hour webinar can’t provide a fix or clear answers, but naming things might offer a way forward. At a time where so many of us are exhausted and isolated, this is a small space for solidarity and dialogue around the complexities of moral injury and burnout in mental health services.

Dr Abdullah Mia is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist within an NHS male medium-secure unit in Birmingham. He has additional training in group analysis and organisational dynamics, along with different therapeutic approaches. In addition to his professional training, he is engaged in community psychology work to develop his local community to develop groups to build connection and support inclusive and across a number of diverse characteristics.

Abdullah is interested in how to support oppressed voices to be heard in places to create change and shine a light on alternative narratives. This involves the valuing and building of networks of resistance against conscious and unconscious anxious enactments, which can lead to abuses of power and authority. In particular, he focuses on how institutional and systemic racism impacts upon the mental health of employees and people who use services.

Organiser ISPS UK

Organiser of Burnout in mental health services

ISPS promotes psychological and social approaches to psychosis.

ISPS UK is the United Kingdom network of the International organisation ISPS – International Society for Psychological and Social Approaches to Psychosis (formerly known as the International Society for the Psychological Treatment of the Schizophrenias and other Psychoses).

ISPS draws together individuals who are interested in the psychological understanding and treatment of the psychoses and supports those who want to develop psychological approaches in their own places of work.

ISPS works to promote greater knowledge of the different psychological approaches to psychosis and psychotic experiences – psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural, arts-based, family and holistic approaches – and their better integration with each other and with pharmaceutical approaches.

ISPS provides a place where professionals, service users and carers can share their ideas, hopes and struggles, and can examine their differences in constructive dialogue and debate.

ISPS UK:

Organises national and regional conferences and workshops on key issues

Supports the development of local groups and special interest groups

Promotes good practice in psychological approaches to psychosis

Publishes a regular newsletter with in depth reviews of books and conferences

Provides a lively, widely-used email discussion list

Links with ISPS networks in other countries
