In Conversation with... Deborah Murphy

In this episode, Edwina talks to Deborah Murphy, Lead Occupational Therapist and Mental Health Manager at HMP Pentonville. Deborah was the driving force in redesigning the therapeutic services available in the prison to ensure that the wellbeing and mental health needs of people in prison were being assessed and addressed. She shares examples of activities as therapeutic interventions and positive changes to the environment that were implemented such as welcoming interiors and a kitchen which made prison residents feel part of something and feel ownership of their environment.
