“It is vital we have the right services in place when children, young people or indeed adults need them. But this must be combined with greater public understanding of the reasons why someone might self harm and how to get help.” Dr Jacqueline Cornish, National Clinical Director for Children, Young People and Transition to Adulthood NHS England
This CPD certified national conference focuses on improving services and outcomes for people who self harm. National updates including a presentation from Jess Barrett, Lead Researcher and Developer, National Collaborating Centre for Mental Health, Royal College of Psychiatrists, and practical case studies will look at; how the pathway for those who self harm can be improved from identification and early intervention with partnership working; improving services for those in crisis; developing effective services and working with people to improve coping strategies to reducing suicide and reducing stigma; and mitigating risk and managing the impact of self harm. There will also be a presentation from a lived experience perspective of how we can improve services, build understanding and encourage people to talk about self harm.
Don’t miss this important networking opportunity to learn from colleagues, experts and best practice case studies to develop your skills and improve competence in mental health services for people who self harm, whilst reflecting on your own practice and gaining CPD accreditation points for your professional development and revalidation evidence.
