Centre staff are active beyond the research work they undertake. Here are some of the speaking engagements that they are involved with, as well as events that we are supporting in some other way. Many of the events we run ourselves are smaller and therefore by invitation only, and so don't appear here.
The New Savoy 7th Annual Conference Psychological therapies in the NHS 2013 marks the halfway point for the Coalition Government’s Mental Health Strategy and its 4-Year Talking Therapies Plan.
This year the event will focus on re-thinking the approach to improving quality and how to navigate a way forward with new clinically led commissioning frameworks. Delegates will have the opportunity to challenge and engage with Ministers, policy makers and decision-makers including the Health Minister and new National Clinical Director for Mental Health at NHS England on day one, and the Minister for Welfare Reform and new Directors for Mental Health and Wellbeing and Long-term conditions at Public Health England and NHS England for day two.
James Morris MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Mental Health, will speak at the evening reception to launch the next phase of the We Need to Talk campaign, and Baroness Claire Tyler, Deputy Chair All Party Parliamentary Group for Supporting Relationships, will be launching the report into IAPT, Choice and Couple Therapy.
This Health, Work and Wellbeing: Creating a Healthy, Engaged and Motivated Workforce briefing will examine the leading strategies and ideas to keep Britain's workforce healthy and productive, explore the link between employment and good health and present best practice examples about improving the overall health of employees.
Topics to be discussed include:
Jan Hutchinson, our Director of Programmes, will be speaking at this event.
Focusing on objective three: More people with mental health problems will have good physical health, of the Mental Health Strategy, this conference takes a practical case study based approach learning from organisations that have succeeded in addressing the challenge of improving the physical health of people with mental health conditions.
Sean Duggan, our Chief Executive, will be chairing this conference.
In May 2013, the government introduced the Care Bill to Parliament. This Bill aims to reform social care to ensure that the system effectively reflects the needs of service users whilst supporting their carers and families. This new system will be focused on wellbeing, prevention and independence through providing integrated care.
With these key issues in mind, GovKnow has organised the Reforming Social Care Conference 2014, a forum for discussion and debate on the future of social care in England. This conference will bring together stakeholders working across the social care spectrum on issues.
Attendees will have the opportunity to question expert speakers, network with peers and service providers and gain insight into how the planned reforms will affect the lives of millions of people across the country.
Centre for Mental Health is supporting this conference and Andy Bell, our Deputy Chief Executive, will be speaking.
