"Victims of sexual abuse will receive a lifetime of mental health care to help cope with the trauma." NHS England June 2018

“The physical and emotional impact of sexual crimes lasts a lifetime, so it’s important that survivors can get the help they need, whenever they need it. The physical effect of these crimes is so shocking that it can be easy to overlook the long-term mental health needs, which may be less visible but not less harmful. Across England, the NHS is expanding care for people with mental ill health, whatever their condition, and our new guarantee of personal, joined-up and life-long care for those who have suffered sexual assault and abuse, will build on excellent progress to address a big gap in care.” Kate Davies, NHS England Director of Sexual Assault Services, June 2018

Following the June 2018 government commitment to ensuring victims of sexual abuse will receive a lifetime of mental health care to cope with the trauma, this conference focuses on the important issue of sexual abuse and mental health; reducing the impact of abuse on mental health.

Researched and produced with Paul Scates Peer Specialist, Campaigner and Survivor of Sexual Abuse, this Second National Conference will through national updates, survivor perspectives, expert sessions and practical case studies the conference cover:

• meeting the national commitment to ensure victims of sexual abuse receive a lifetime of effective mental health care
• Helping reduce the impact of abuse on later mental health problems
• What does a gold standard sexual abuse pathway look like?
• Victim support, early mental health support, and the police role
• The role of Sexual Abuse Referral Centres in Mental Health

• Relieving the stress of families, carers and parents of children who have been affected by sexual abuse 
• Supporting survivors of historical abuse in an institution
