Liz Snodgrass from Renfrewshire became the first winner of the SASW MHO of the Year Award in memory of Wilma MacDonald, a highly respected and loved MHO from the East End of Glasgow who died in 2009. Liz has been a social worker for many years and a practising MHO who has a wealth of experience in the field. She told us a bit about why she went into social work; the opportunities that social work has given her; why she specialises in mental health work; the significance of the award; changes in the field over the years and what needs to be done going forward; how she shares her skills and knowledge; what advice she would give to others working in mental health; how she 'goes the extra mile' in her work; and the challenges of personalisation.
