Psychiatric Genetic Counselling: International Strategies and Challenges – Interactive web documentary

Media and Journalism students Chelsea Nwasike and Grace Brewer have developed an interactive documentary to illustrate the Psychiatric Genetic Counselling research project and its two recent workshops that are helping to transform approaches to psychiatric genetic counselling.

Genetic counsellors and researchers who attended the European and international workshops were interviewed and included in an interactive platform, along with videos from Dr Kevin McGhee and a ‘mental health jar’ demonstration video.

Dr Kevin McGhee explained: “By expanding healthcare professionals understanding of genetics and mental illness and providing a way for people around the world to view these discussions from the workshops, we want to raise awareness and encourage people to take better care of their mental health.”
