The highlights from one of the year's biggest mental health conferences, looking at the current state of affairs in UK mental health care.
At the beginning of this year, the NHS Long Term Plan reinforced commitment to the biggest transformation of mental health care the country has seen.
On Thursday 26 September 2019, healthcare professionals came together at the Royal Society of Medicine in London for Mental Health 2019 - the third annual conference by Govconnect, dedicated to promoting collaboration among delivery partners across the healthcare system.
Digital solutions and prevention
Here at Minddistrict, we were proud to be a sponsor of this event and be included in what was a significantly valuable day, where we heard from a great selection of speakers. Topics throughout the day included redesigning children's mental health services using digital solutions and prevention vs. cure in mental health.
Jacqui Dyer MBE, Vice-Chair of the Mental Health Taskforce, served as the event's Chair and delivered an excellent opening address. The Taskforce are the independent organisation behind the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health, the groundbreaking 2016 report that secured an additional £1 billion in funding for mental health, creating more access to care.
