South West Mental Health Commissioning Network

January 24th 2017 Holiday Inn Taunton M5 J25

Further to the continued success of the regional Mental Health Commissioning Networks, we are delighted to announce we are holding a seventh South West event.

The conference will once again be chaired by Dr Alison Battersby, Consultant Psychiatrist and Addiction Specialist, Mount Gould Hospital, Plymouth, on Tuesday 24th Janaury - with a focus on:

  • Depression - recovery in the community, reducing pressure in secondary care
  • The hidden costs of Schizophrenia and benefits of addressing parity of esteem
  • ADHD in adults - "making the invisible, visible - improving lives, reducing costs"

The aim of the networks is 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.

Full agenda below. Contact the NHiS Events Team for more information.

This meeting has been sponsored and supported financially by Lundbeck Otsuka Alliance, Shire Ltd & Sunovion Ltd
