Helen Tennant Award

This prize is awarded by the Board of Examiners of Aston University on behalf of the College of Mental Health Pharmacy in memory of Helen Tennant, a keen and active member of the Group, who was in the first cohort of mental health pharmacists to gain the Diploma in Psychiatric Pharmacy from Aston University in 2001.

It is awarded each year to the student with the best overall performance in the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychiatric Pharmacy at Aston University.

  • Winner -  Elizabeth Dobson

Celia Feetam Award

Aston University created this award in 2018 to recognise the student with the best overall performance in the postgraduate Certificate in Psychiatric Therapeutics each year.  The Celia Feetam Award was named in recognition of the extensive and valued contribution made by Celia to the higher education of so many specialist pharmacists.

Celia sadly passed away early this year and in her memory the College of Mental Health Pharmacy and Aston have agreed that this award will be adopted from 2022 onwards by CMHP.  It will be called the Celia Feetam Memorial Award and will be awarded by CMHP to the highest performing certificate student each year.

  • Winner - Claire Galbraith

The awards were presented by CMHP President Ciara Ni Dhubhlaing at our annual conference. She said:

“The oral and poster presentations at our conference this year demonstrate that the show goes on and so many colleague somehow managed to continue to progress research in mental health pharmacy in spite of the press of the pandemic. The quality of work submitted was once again high. Huge congratulations to everyone who presented regardless of whether they were successful in receiving an award.”
