Event description

Description

Mental health issues have come into much greater prominence in public discussion compared to just a few years ago. In 2016, the government published its Five Year Forward View, which included a promise to fund mental health services by an extra £1bn per year by 2020/21. Whilst some progress has been made, services remain underfunded and fragmented. Our next event in a series of mental health conferences Meeting Mental Health Needs: Practical Interventions to Improving Solutions will be another excellent opportunity to discuss and analyse the latest developments and track the journey towards a system of better treatment, integration and funding.

There has been some significant progress in some areas of mental health. The Minister for Loneliness role was created by the Prime Minister in January 2018 in response to loneliness and isolation becoming more widespread in UK society. In May 2018, the government announced NHS perinatal mental health care would be rolled out across the UK. But despite steps like these, there is still a long way to go to bettering each aspect of mental health. It is a very big picture that needs a lot of magnifying down onto the many specifics to see an overall improvement.

There are several factors in achieving an overall improvement in the general population’s mental health. These range from early intervention and parity of esteem to improving integration and whole-person approaches. It is not only healthcare that should hold responsibility for improving people’s mental health. Other institutions play a pivotal part such as social services, housing, education and the criminal justice system. This is sometimes missing in the mental health picture. All corners of society should be putting enough time and effort into considering the mental health of the people with whom it comes into contact. At this event, you will gain improved understanding of the myriad of factors and issues surrounding mental health.
