Improving Mental Health Care for Offenders

Showcasing best practice from pioneering new ideas to day-to-day improvements.

Date: 10 November 2017

Venue: Birmingham City Football Ground, Saint Andrews Stadium, Cattell Road, Birmingham, West Midlands,

With larger than ever numbers of offenders experiencing mental health issues and the suicide rate in prisons rising year-on-year to a 2017 record high of 113, the need for improved mental health care for offenders is clear. This conference is designed to enable learning through case studies, research sharing and multi-agency networking. If your service could benefit from refining your approach to self-harm, substance abuse, crisis management or even improving continuity across the stepped care model, then this unique training event is for you.
