This year’s theme was “Exploring mental health across the life course” with a programme designed to explore mental health issues specific to: Children and young people; Working age adults; and Older adults.
Broader sessions will look at the sector more holistically, including our opening keynote address, and an exploration of how technology and social media are helping to deliver mental health services.
