Johnathan Evans handed the baton of the President of YMS to Barry Wright on the 14th May. Johnathon has had a successful if strange year as president with a number of excellent speakers and social events most of them over Zoom including his fascinating insight into the world of cheating in the Tour de France which he gave as his valedictory address. This is accessible on YouTube via the members page or past events.

Barry has an exciting programme which we will put on the Events page ASAP. We hope at least some of these will be in person in the rooms, even if with a reduced capacity. We plan to keep the option to join in by Zoom, for now at least, although you will need to provide your own wine and after dinner meal.

Barry Wright is currently a Professor of Child Mental Health working at both the Hull York Medical School (University of York) and as a consultant in the Leeds and York NHS Partnership Foundation Trust.

He leads the Child Oriented Mental health Intervention Centre, which is dedicated to researching innovative and child friendly ways of improving the mental health of children and young people.
