The Trust’s adult ADHD and autism service has been invited to share and showcase their innovative work in Iceland.
Iceland’s director of mental health services personally invited the team to present their groundbreaking work on diagnosing ADHD using an AI (artificial intelligence) tool, which was developed in collaboration with the University of Huddersfield to improve the quality of diagnosis.
The team have previously worked with the Icelandic Mental Health Service to advise on the launch and development of their ADHD service. The service hopes to also share learning and experiences with their Icelandic colleagues.
This follows on from the team’s consultant psychiatrist Professor Marios Adamou being awarded an OBE for services to mental health.
Business manager Ellen Wright said: “The team are delighted for Marios and are pleased that his contribution to mental health services has been recognised in this way. He is an inspirational leader who is very supportive and approachable, he leads by example, encouraging us all to be innovative and person centred. The Honour is well deserved.”
