Monday 11 March 2019
De Vere West One Conference Centre, London

Follow this conference on Twitter #DualDiagnosis

“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 2018

“People with a dual diagnosis frequently struggle to get the support they need with a range of issues because, too often, services are designed around the needs of the system rather than the individual.” Lord Victor Adebowale CBE Co-chair for the All Part Parliamentary Group for Complex Needs and Dual Diagnosis 2018

“It is still the case that many people with complex needs or a dual diagnosis simply do not have their needs met.” APPG for Complex Needs – A Call for Evidence on Social Action 2018
