Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce the London launch of the UKRI-funded Violence, Abuse and Mental Health: Opportunities for Change Network. This will take place at the Royal College of Psychiatrists, 21 Prescott St, London E1 8BB, from 5 p.m. until 7.30 p.m.

The event is a free networking reception, with wine and nibbles, for potential and existing network members and an opportunity to meet people working in this field from many backgrounds and sectors, including survivors of violence and abuse, front-line clinicians, researchers, professionals working for third sector organisations, policymakers, and funders. We will tell you about the aims of the network and our planned activities and small grant competitions. We hope you will contribute to the discussions, providing us with ideas we may not have previously included or considered.

Speakers to include:
Professor Louise Howard, Professor of Women's Mental Heath and Dr Sian Oram, Joint network lead, King's College London - Welcome to the Network Launch

Dr Kate Lovett, Dean of the Royal College of Psychiatrists - Welcome from the Royal College of Psychiatrists

Professor Wendy Burn, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists

Professor Felicity Callard, Chair of the Network Advisory Group and Director of the Birkbeck Institute of Social Research

Donna Covey, Chief Executive of Against Violence and Abuse

Professor Louise Arseneault, ESRC Mental Health Leadership Research Fellow

The launch will take place immediately after the first Royal College of Psychiatrists' conference on Domestic Violence and Mental Health at the Royal College of Psychiatrists, which also includes several network members. For more details and booking information about the conference, please see
https://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/traininpsychiatry/conferencestraining/conferencesandcourses/dec07_womensmhconf2018.aspx

We have a limited amount of funding to cover travel costs for people travelling to attend the launch from outside of London (second class train tickets, bus tickets or mileage costs). Survivors of violence and abuse, early career researchers, and representatives of third sector organisations will be prioritised and funds awarded on a first come, first served basis. Please email vamhn@kcl.ac.uk to request funding, or if you have any other queries about the event.

We look forward to seeing you there!
