Patient and Public Involvement Models of Good Practice in Mental Health: A Conference for Service Users, Carers and Other Professionals, Friday 7 February 2014

The Trust is hosting a Patient and Public Involvement Conference on Friday 7th February 2014 on behalf of the Mental Health Patient and Public Involvement Forum . The conference is for service users, carers and other professionals who are interested in learning, understanding and developing their thinking and practical skills around providing good practice in mental health settings in relation to service user involvement.

Trust Chair, Angela Greatley, will be opening the conference and the day will begin with a talk from Baroness Molly Meacher of Spitalfields on the subject of ‘No Health Without Mental Health’. As well as some stimulating and lively talks throughout the day, there will be practical workshops available for delegates to attend and gain some further insight into providing good practice in patient and public involvement. Each workshop will be interactive and encourage delegates to share and discuss their personal experience of service user involvement. The day promises to ensure that service users can genuinely engage with staff in order to properly influence service delivery.
