About this event

The mental health system is under increasing strain, with the coronavrirus pandemic causing increased demand for services, delayed transfer of care and stretching the existing workforce and estates to capacity. As we approach autumn it will be critical to have local strategies and systems in place to ensure people can access the right care at the right time in an appropriate setting and to support early discharge and hospital avoidance.

Community mental health services play a crucial role in delivering mental health care for adults with severe mental health needs as close to home as possible. There is significant transformation work underway to develop new and integrated models of primary and community mental health care, including a focus on health and social care provision, mental health rehabilitation and more joined up care between primary and secondary care.

Bringing together colleagues from across the NHS, supported housing sector and primary care, this will be an opportunity to reflect on how community-based interventions – such as supported housing and rehabilitation models – can support the mental health system in the coming months and years.

Hosted by the Mental Health Network, and supported by Look Ahead Care and Support, this session will explore ideas and innovations on how community based solutions can reduce pressure on services, minimise bed days and limit the impact of the coronavirus and rising demand.

Speakers include:

• Sean Duggan, CEO, Mental Health Network

• Angelina Morgan, Director of Mental Health, Look Ahead

• Angus Gartshore, Director of Delivery Improvement – Interim CMH Director, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust

• Dr Sridevi Kalidindi, National Clinical Lead for Mental Health Rehabilitation & Chair, Association of Mental Health Providers

• Hazel Taylor, Clinical Director, Sunderland Washington PCN

This webinar will take place on zoom. Please register to ensure you receive the calendar invitation with the joining link.
