Anish became part of Sheffield Children’s after he was selected for a fellowship opportunity through the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

He said: “I was working as an Adult Psychiatrist outside the UK and was looking for child psychiatry experience when I heard about the opportunities in the Trust. I initially joined in a fellowship training opportunity in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and later joined as a staff member in Specialist CAMHS.

“My role now involves supporting my team as a medic for children with mental health issues in learning disability and Multi-Agency Psychological Support (MAPS) for looked after children.”

Anish came to the UK after growing up in the southernmost part of India, which is called Kerala.

He said: “Kerala is known as ‘God’s own Country’ because of its terrestrial beauty and is on the ‘One of the must see 50 destinations of a lifetime’ as reported by National Geographic. When I reached Sheffield I learned that it is also part of ‘God’s own Country’.

“So now I say to everyone I travelled from one ‘God’s own Country’ to another!”

While he was settling into life in Yorkshire, Anish has also been encouraged to develop in his role at Sheffield Children’s.

He said: “It’s a very supportive environment, with a good work/life balance and lots of opportunities to develop your own potential and extra-clinical interests too. During the pandemic I’ve felt more safe and valued by the Trust because of the support and care extended by the Trust and my colleagues.”

As part of one of these extra-clinical interests, Anish has been helping to create apps for parents.

“I work with freelancers to create the apps and independently publish on stores. The apps are free to download and based on children’s mental health and parenting. My most recent app update is for ‘Parent Box’. This app is based on the principle of delaying gratification in children.”
