Annual Spike Milligan Public Speaking Competition
The College of Psychiatrists of Ireland’s annual Spike Milligan Public Speaking Competition is taking place on 23rd of November at 6.30pm in the Sugar Club in Dublin.
This Public Speaking Competition was first held in 1999 as part of the Changing Minds Campaign of the College, addressing the stigma associated with mental health problems. Spike Milligan generously lent his name to the competition. It honours his great work as an advocate for those affected by mental ill health.
The aim of the competition is to foster and promote communication skills among doctors in training; with a focus on mental health. It is also an opportunity for public outreach and engagement on matters concerning mental health issues.
Teams of two from UL, NUIG, TCD, RCSI, & QUB will speak on the topic of:
“All Changed, Changed utterly” (Yeats, Easter 1916):
1916-2016 Mental Illness and Recovery – All the Children of the Nation Treated Equally Now?
Refreshments will be provided at the end of the evening, we welcome you to join us once our winners and runners-up have been selected and presented with their prize.
This is a FREE, public event, however places are limited. Please register your attendance by emailing Mary Hayes at firstname.lastname@example.org
