Secure Mental Health conference

St Andrew’s Healthcare and Essex Partnership University Trust invite you to our eleventh annual PDP conference on secure metal health services to discuss current challenges clinicians face.

Our one day conference provides an opportunity for colleagues working in secure and general adult services across the East of England and neighbouring regions, to discuss and debate topical issues, hear from prominent speakers about developments in secure mental healthcare and to address some of the challenges we face in the field. It also gives opportunities for networking and learning from peers.
