King’s Psychiatry Society
In 2018, Haridha became the President of the King’s Psychiatry Society. Set up in 2005, the society promotes and supports students pursuing psychiatry careers, raising the profile of mental health issues amongst all student health professionals.
Under Haridha’s guidance, the Society expanded their membership, launching a book club, and running a successful evening conference in collaboration with the London Division of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
She said: “Being a part of the King’s Psychiatry Society has been one of my favourite parts of medical school. I think this has made me a better student as I have had to develop all sorts of additional leadership and management skills."
"The backing we have had from King’s, in particular the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience in supporting our events, providing speakers and helping us reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness has been amazing.”
