Hear from a Student Placement

“I really enjoyed my placement at CRHTT. I gained a vast amount of knowledge and skills in relation to rapid assessment, risk management and treatment which will enhance my practice as a newly qualified mental health nurse.

The team were very supportive of each other when assessing and making decisions which I believe is very important, especially in this area of work. Each practitioner made me feel very welcome and encouraged me to seek as many opportunities as possible. I would encourage all future students to experience CRHTT.”
