This national CPD certified conference will provide you with practical advice, knowledge and the enthusiasm to successfully improve the management of severe mental illness and substance misuse within your organisation, for your service users. The day will systematically address the recommendations made by NICE through national updates, discussions and practical case studies providing you with ample resources and ideas for implementation. You will hear from Guideline Development Group members, NHS pioneers, service users and front line service leaders, and will have the opportunity to network with colleagues who have the same goals and aspirations in addressing Dual Diagnosis improvements as you. 

Professor Alan Maryon-Davis, Chair, Guideline Development Group, Severe mental illness and substance misuse (dual diagnosis) – community health and social care services, NICE recently said “We need to ensure people with mental health problems and drug dependency get the treatment they need…… We have made several recommendations that I think could have a real impact, but I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight two main messages... First, there has to be much wider recognition that this group of people, despite their complexities, have as much right to dedicated care and support as anyone else. They should not be turned away or left to flounder. Every effort should be made to help them benefit from the services they so badly need. Crucial to this is a non-judgmental, empathetic approach and the building up of mutual respect and trust. And secondly, good communication is key! Staff working in mental health, substance misuse, primary care, social care, housing, employment, benefits, criminal justice and the voluntary sector need to have strong leadership to ensure that they are all working together as best they can. We recommend that this can be best achieved by having dedicated care coordinators.”
