Thank you Caledonian University Nursing & Mental health Students

As a son who cared for his mum Joan  for five years and would be awareness campaigner , I would just like to thank Caledonian university for inviting me  over the last 3 weeks to speak to the Mental Health and Nursing Student.

Today was the last of the three talks, I really appreciate everyone taking the time to listen to my wee story about my mum Joan  and the life stories I have collected.

Thank you for the incredibly kind messages  I have received today and over the last few week from these inspiring students .  I wish everyone of them the best in their  journey ahead which ever field of car they work in.

  1. Your talk was heartbreaking but very inspirational at the same time, Tommy. It has always been my plan to work towards specialising in dementia and your lecture reinforced just how much I want not just to be a nurse, but to be a great nurse who can make a difference to people like yourself and your mum. Thank you so much for coming to talk to us. I don't think anyone will be forgetting it in a hurry.
