The above poem from the Derbyshire NHS Trust has been widely used particularly for young people to gain some understanding of the emotions surrounding dementia/mental health. It has had some wonderful feedback:
"I am not surprised you have had such a positive response from carers and people who work in this field. I am responsible for organising citizenship in the 6th form here at Chellaston Academy and this is a resource that I will definitely use, either in assembly, form time or as a direct email link to the sixth formers on the topic of mental health, or just to encourage them to put themselves in the shoes of other people."
(James Newton (Assistant Head of Sixth Form), Chellaston Academy, Derby Care, Compassion and Communication.
