The Parental Mental Health and Child Welfare Network study day 6th December

I have been involved in these days in the past and they are worth attending!

The Parental Mental Health and Child Welfare Network is holding its 7th study day on Monday 6th December in partnership with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLAM), on 
Family Thinking: Keeping The Whole Picture In Mind Working With Families Affected By Parental Mental Ill-Health

*10 free places reserved for service users and carers*

**Draft Programme now available**

Sharing ideas and practice with others passionate about the needs of people in families – of all sizes and shapes – who have been affected by parental mental ill-health, can be an inspiring boost to us all.

To consider critically, government policy developments affecting working with families affected by parental mental ill-health. The day will include :

· News from the Department of Health’s Nurse Partnership Programme;

· Innovative thinking from John Burnham, Head of Family Services at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and renowned speaker and practitioner;

· The latest developments in sites supported by SCIE’s Think Child, Think Parent, Think Family implementation team;

· Personal experiences of caring for a parent with mental health issues from young carers supported by the Children’s Society.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity – places are going fast. Thanks to a contribution from the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) we are able to keep our early bird price of £95 right up until the 6th December instead of charging £125 from the 11th of November as earlier advertised.

We look forward to seeing you on the 6th!
