Description

Member's Lunchtime Seminar

Mind and Body: don't separate the inseparable.

We know mental and physical health conditions are connected. The average life expectancy for someone with a long-term mental health illness is much shorter than for someone without. Likewise, many people with long-term physical health conditions also suffer from depression or other mental health conditions. Kate Lillywhite will be talking to us about how we are addressing the problems of making sure we care for the Mind and Body together.

We will start with a light lunch, and Kate’s talk will be followed by the opportunity to ask questions.

This seminar is hosted by South London and Maudsley (SLaM) membership and governors.

Our speaker will be Kate Lillywhite, Programme Director - Mind & Body, King's Health Partners.

One of the primary aims of King’s Health Partners is to address the challenges which exist at the interface between mental and physical healthcare. Mental and physical health conditions are often connected. The average life expectancy for someone with a long-term mental health illness is much shorter than for someone without. Likewise, many people with long-term physical health conditions also suffer from depression or other mental health conditions. The Mind and Body programme was established to help us align and integrate our mental and physical health services so that we are better able to treat the whole person, supported by the latest research and innovative training.

Kate Lillywhite joined King’s Health Partners in 2016 as Programme Director, working closely with Clinical Director, Dr Sean Cross, and a small project team. Kate arrives from the Department of Health where she worked on the Equity and Excellence White Paper, NHS Listening Exercise and Care Bill before becoming Private Secretary to the Secretary of State for Health. Kate has subsequently worked in a variety of roles, with a particular highlight being Troubled Families policy, focusing on the health needs of some of society’s most vulnerable and chaotic families, with a particular emphasis on mental health outreach, and was Senior Team Lead on the Department of Health’s Efficiency Programme.
