The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the fore existing and new challenges in mental health services, and stimulated innovative solutions to meet them.
We are hosting two events to articulate the evolving needs of mental health services and discuss how best they can be met during the pandemic and beyond.
This event will cover the theme of community and place-based care and the second event will cover acute and crisis mental health care:
Our mental health focus
A key objective for UCLPartners is to improve health and care in mental health and deliver evidence-based solutions for our population. As part of our mental health and behaviour change programme and, together with national and regional partners in the NHS, we are working with innovators and partners to address critical system needs through technology and service innovation.
What the event will include
· Keynote presentations from Tim Kendall, National Clinical Director for Mental Health NHS England, Peter Fonagy, UCLPartners Programme Director Mental Health and Behaviour Change and Paul Farmer, CEO of Mind.
· A series of case study presentations from NHS Trusts and companies on innovation in mental health care settings focussed on community care.
· Final sessions on accelerating technology adoption to meet community mental health service challenges.
Identifying opportunities for collaboration
The outcome of these two engaging events will be to identify opportunities and areas of focus that programme leads and innovators can take forward with support from the UCLPartners team.
We very much hope you can join us and be involved with this collaboration of NHS stakeholders and industry as part of the UCLPartners mental health and behaviour change programme and the work of the UCLPartners Commercial & Innovation team.
Delegates are encouraged to attend either or both events, depending on your interest in community or acute mental health services.
