This site is intended for healthcare professionals
Our aim is to help ensure that mental health professionals can provide the best possible care, within the highest quality services. We know how important your professional development is for achieving these outcomes, so our CPD-accredited training day is designed to help.
Discover new research and practices
New ideas and developing practices should always be available to you as mental health care professionals, to ensure you can provide the best possible care. That is why the Mental Health Study Day will focus on topical, current research and practices, to help you stay up-to-date.

Masterclass sessions and workshops
The Mental Health Study Day offers a unique structure. You will attend a masterclass session to hear from an expert practitioner, then in the afternoon you have a choice of two topics for each of the two sessions, giving you flexibility to suit your own needs and interests.
Hear from leading practitioners
You will learn from the experts at the Mental Health Study Day, who will be delivering the masterclass and seminar programme. You will also network and discuss successes and difficulties with other like-minded professionals in attendance, to really get the most out of your day.
