THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar focuses on the future for mental health services in Wales.
It will provide an opportunity to assess what more might be done to develop young people’s resilience and provide mental health support, and discuss the key issues arising from the inquiry into the Emotional and Mental Health of Children and Young People and early indications from the Welsh Government pilot initiative on specialised services in schools.
Delegates will also consider priorities for Transition and Adult services - looking at the Welsh Government’s pilot funding scheme to promote social prescribing and community based care, and steps that might be taken to build on the findings of the Health Social Care and Sport Committee’s Inquiry into Suicide Prevention.
Further sessions will look at strategies for reducing stigma and raising awareness of mental health issues, ways to address the challenges for ensuring early intervention and delivering services closer to people’s homes, and opportunities for promoting greater collaboration between providers, as well as examining key issues around funding and access to mental health services.
Attendees will also discuss the monitoring and regulation of mental health services, in the context of the Health Inspectorate’s upcoming Annual Report into the use of the Mental Health Act and the Joint HIW & CSSIW National Review of Adult Community Mental Health Services due to be published earlier in the year.
