This virtual conference focuses on the important issues of Depression in Adult – supporting people through and beyond Covid-19, and will also focus on the forthcoming NICE Guideline Depression in Adults: treatment and management, currently out in draft form for Consultation.  National update sessions and case studies will focus on meeting the increased demand, ensuring access, providing effective treatment and management and case studies will highlight best practice and challenges in managing people with depression experiencing social isolation and loneliness, supporting young adults in higher education, supporting healthcare professionals, people from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and those experiencing depression as a co-morbid symptom of long Covid.

“Around 1 in 5 (21%) adults experienced some form of depression in early 2021”

Office for National Statistics May 2021

“This is a broad ranging guideline on depression which has been an enormous challenge to produce... In particular we’ve emphasised the role of patient choice – suggesting that practitioners should offer people a choice of evidence-based treatments and understanding that not every treatment will suit every person. We now need stakeholders' help to make the recommendations as good as they can possibly be.” 

Nav Kapur, Professor of Psychiatry and Population Health, University of Manchester and Chair of the Guideline Committee, Nov 2021
