CAMHS July 2017 CONFERENCE
This 3 day conference offers a critical and reflexive context in which CAMHS professionals and academics can explore contemporary issues in children and young people’s mental health. Socioeconomic constraints continue to present significant challenges for practitioners and scholars supporting children and young people’s mental health. Our conference themes this year – transitions, collaborations and transformations – offer some potential focuses for conference contributions, but our aim is to offer a space in which any issues relevant to children and young people’s mental health can be explored
The emphasis on transforming mental health services places unique demands on the workforce. The contemporary emphasis on collaboration and participation offers many new possibilities for services and for children, young people and families who use those services. The conference offers a context to consider how we might rise to the challenges and opportunities these developments in CAMHS offer. In our third theme, we explore the role of an understanding of transitions in mental health services for children and young people.
Confirmed keynotes include Professor Tamsin Ford, Professor John Read, and Dr Lindsay O’Dell.
