Psychiatry Day Conference 2019

Psychiatry Day Conference 2019
In our world today, we are seeing an increase in children and young people struggling with their mental health, presenting across different health settings, from A&E departments, paediatric wards, schools and CAMHS services. What should be our response as Christians working across these different settings? In this day conference we will explore some of the challenges to children and young people's mental health and how we can best support children, young people and their families.

Who is the conference for?

This event is aimed at psychiatrists at any stage. Other medics, healthcare professionals and medical students are also welcome. You don’t need to be a member of CMF to attend.
