Resource Centre opens its doors

Resource CentreA state-of-the-art mental health learning and resource centre is opening its doors to the public next week at The Retreat in York.

The new Resource Centre and Training facility provides information and learning resources on mental health.

On Thursday 26 March, from 1.30 to 3.30 The Retreat and the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) are holding an open event to show case this fantastic resource and to outline the benefits of RCN membership

The centre, equipped with computer and presentation equipment, is open to Royal College of Nursing (RCN) members as a reference facility, as well as students on placements from the university and staff from The Retreat. The new centre is an important learning facility for mental health professionals and also acts as the Yorkshire learning resource for RCN members.

A host of mental health publications, research papers and learning equipment is available within the centre which has been built on lower-ground floor at The Retreat. Staff can also come in and use the computers, borrow books and get help accessing information from the learning resource centre manager Gill Moss.

Gill said: “We want to encourage more people to come and use our new facilities. We are really pleased with the newly refurbished centre. It not only looks fantastic, but the learning and training equipment we now have is superb. I think everyone using it will agree that this really is a wonderful resource.”

The Retreat’s learning and development manager Tim Ward said: “We believe in providing our staff with the best training and development facilities and this new centre is second to none. We hope that everyone will treat it with respect and make use of this great new environment.”
