Event description

Description

The Leeds Dual Diagnosis Network invites anyone with an interest in substance misuse and mental health across the city to attend the following FREE talk.

This talk will provide an overview of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and the particular requirements where ASD co-occurs with substance misuse in a service user or patient.

The talk will also touch upon when attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and substance misuse also occur together in the same patient or service user.

Speaker: Dr Conor Davidson is a CMHT consultant psychiatrist based at Bootham Park Hospital, York. He has an interest in autism spectrum disorders, in particular comorbidity of autism and psychiatric disorders.

In the past Conor has worked in the Sheffield Asperger service, and he is now part of the Leeds Autism Diagnostic Service.

He has published several papers on autism including on Asperger syndrome and First Episode Psychosis. In April 2017, Conor was appointed trust wide autism lead for Tees, Esk and Wear Valley Foundation Trust.

Unfortunately for him, Conor is a lifelong Leeds United supporter.

Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust practitioners will be available between 12-1pm to provide clinical supervision to attendees if required.
