Rotary Global Grant
We are delighted to welcome the incoming Global Grant student, Dr Nao Shiraishi from Japan, to Glasgow
Dr Nao sent this information prior to coming to Glasgow University to study for a masters degree:
I am a 38-year-old man and my nationality is Japan. Since completing a two-year residency programme, I have worked as a psychiatrist for eight years. For recent four years, I have been working for Nagoya City University Hospital as a clinical research fellow. My subspecialty is psychosocial interventions such as family psychoeducation and cognitive behavioural therapy. By using these kinds of interventions, I want to try to improve the mental health of family members who have patients with mental illness and that of workers with the illness in local community.
