West Midlands Mental Health Innovation Network Presents: Prevention 15 November 2016
We are really excited to announce the fourth network event in the WMMHIN 2016/17 programme 'Prevention' will be held in partnership with Public Health England. Showcasing fantastic speakers, an exciting agenda and a beautiful venue we think this will be our most popular event to date, so please book soon to avoid disappointment.
This network event will address the prevention of mental ill-health and distress.
Prevention is a key priority for NHS England and featured heavily in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health which states that one of the eight principles to underpin reform is that prevention and early intervention must be prioritised.
This WMMHIN event aims to prompt discussion and actions around the topic of prevention of severe and enduring mental illness, emerging themes from evidence base as well as current and potential pertinent innovations.
We are pleased to announce that we have four excellent speakers confirmed;
Dr Geraldine Strathdee, former Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England.
Professor Max Birchwood, Clinical Director, YouthSpace Mental Health Service, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust.
Paul Patterson, Digital Engagement & Public Health Lead for Forward Thinking Birmingham.
Dr Lola Abudu, Health and Wellbeing consultant with PHE West Midlands
Following on from the presentations attendees will be invited to participate in interactive workshops on one of a number of the prevention-themed topics. There will also be a further opportunity for networking and refreshments at the end of the event.
