Follow this conference on Twitter #DualDiagnosis

The day will systematically address how providers can give better care for people with co-occurring mental health and alcohol/drug use conditions. During the days sessions you will hear from NICE Guideline Development Group members, NHS pioneers, service users, front line service leaders and Commissioners. You will be given the opportunity to meet inspiring service leaders and other professionals with the same goals and aspirations in addressing Dual Diagnosis improvements as yourself.

“We have made great strides in tackling the stigma associated with mental health problems but there is still a long way to go. This is particularly the case for many people living with co-existing mental health and substance misuse problems. People with dual diagnosis or other complex needs can be the most vulnerable in society and examples of people being let down by the system, with tragic consequences, are all too common.” Luciana Berger MP Co-chair for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Complex Needs and Dual Diagnosis - People powered recovery January 2018

By attending this one day event you will leave with practical advice, knowledge and the enthusiasm to successfully improve the management of severe mental illness and substance misuse within your organization, for your service users.
