Parental Mental Health and Child Welfare Network Study Day

You may be interested in a study day run by Parental Mental Health and Child Welfare Network to be held on April 30th in Birmingham.

The Parental Mental Health and Child Welfare Network / is a development Network set up to promote joint working between social care and health staff working with parents with mental health problems and their children. This includes encouraging joint understanding across adult mental health and children’s services and raising awareness of good practice in whole family thinking and working.
The Network is led by a steering group of representatives from leading mental health, family, children's and carers’ organisations and networks as well as service users who are parents. It is coordinated by the Social Perspectives Network and supported by the Department for Children Schools and Families. We aim to involve service users and carers in every aspect of the Network development and evaluation to make sure that the Network's activities are user-focused. 

Have a look at the draft programme of the day here

I have been to events by this group before and would recommend it.
