With an increasing focus on STPs as the future for innovation and change, the name of the networks will be changing to reflect this. With effect from September 2017, all networks will now be known as Regional Mental Health Transformation and Sustainability Networks.
We are delighted to announce we are holding a tenth West Midlands event.
The conference will be chaired by Professor Swaran P Singh – Head, Mental and Wellbeing; Deputy Head, Division of Health Sciences and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and Commissioner, Equality and Human Rights Commission on Thursday 19th October, with a focus on:
- Psychosis – How do we need to change the system to manage psychotic crisis?
- ADHD – developing a sustainable service for adults with ADHD across the West Midlands
- Depression – building capacity in the community and a recovery-focused service
Full agenda to follow.
The aims, objectives and structure of the series will remain the same; to bring together like minded people from primary and secondary care, and associated organisations involved in the commissioning and delivery of services to care for and support patients with mental health conditions. This provides a platform for active discussion and exchange of ideas to cope with the commissioning challenges encountered in mental health in a more integrated way. The new focus on STPs will also allow for the introduction of a regional seating plan to further aid local discussion and outputs.
