THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Taking place one year since the launch of the Scottish Government’s Mental Health Strategy, this seminar will be a timely opportunity to examine the progress made since its publication, and to consider further action that can be taken in this important area of policy.
Following the recent establishment of the Youth Commission on Mental Health Services, delegates will assess priorities for raising the standard of support for children and young people within Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) - in education and more widely - and for improving staff training, care pathways, and access to counselling and further support.
Attendees will also consider the role of Personal and Social Education (PSE), in light of the Scottish Government’s review into PSE, which is due to conclude at the end of 2018.
Further sessions discuss next steps for improving the broader delivery of mental health services - taking into account recent changes to the health and social care structures and changes in people’s healthcare needs. Delegates will also look at the priorities for intervention beyond traditional health settings, in areas such as the workplace.
