Hot Topics in Child Health: Making Sense of the System - the future of CYP mental health

Catch-up image

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services are evolving and it is important that professionals who work with children – from doctors, to social care workers and teachers – are equipped with the most up-to-date knowledge so they can spot the signs of any potential mental health problems and intervene when it matters most.

‘Making Sense of the System - the future of CYP mental health’ is the latest in RCPCH’s Hot Topics series of events and will bring together influential representatives to educate and inform a multi-disciplinary audience on making sense of the mental health system. 

Seminal figures in their field, including Professor Dame Sue Bailey, Dr Max Davie and Paula Lavis, have come together to organise a day of interactive keynote speeches and workshops that will ensure delegates leave with a clearer understanding of the system and how they can they work to improve children’s mental health.

Interactive workshops will focus on Schools, Youth Justice, systems reform and the Third sector with a series of group discussions from professional organisations, policy makers, young people and beneficiaries to end the day.
