Mental Health Crisis Summit
28th September 2019 - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
There is a crisis in mental health services in the UK. It’s time to act!
Almost 7000 mental health nurses were lost from 2009 to 2018. Meanwhile, the number of doctors in specialist psychiatric training fell by 20%, and beds available for patients with serious mental health issues fell by over 8000.
That’s why we’re holding a one-day conference in September this year to take a closer look at the mental health crisis – what’s driving it, how government decisions have let it worsen over time, and what action we can take to set things right.
Where: Royal Free Hospital School Of Medicine, Rowland Hill Street, London – NW3 2PF
When: Saturday 28 September 10am – 5pm
So far we are going to be joined Jonathan Ashworth MP Shadow Secretary for Health (tbc), Ken Loach film director (tbc), Diane Abbott MP Shadow Home Secretary (tbc), Kevin Courtney NEU General Secretary, Lowkey musician and activist (tbc), Ian Hodson National President BFAWU, Dr Louise Irvine Health Campaigns Together, Rachel Bannister mother and activist, David Munday mental heath lead Unite the Union, Dr Vic Chapman from the Royal Free, Cath Wakeman OBE trauma therapist, Dr Nihal Fernando Consultant Psychiatrist and many more…
