The Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCPsych) is the professional medical body for psychiatrists whose goal is to provide a greater understanding of the interaction between mental and physical health and the social and cultural context in which people live.

The College assists with issues such as mental health, dementia, learning difficulties and addiction. DeHavilland provides political intelligence and monitoring that helps the College fulfil its vital role of representing the interests of psychiatry to key stakeholders such as the Government. DeHavilland spoke with Peter Hand, RCPsych’s Public Affairs Manager.
