"New Perspectives and Developments in Psychiatry” – with exclusive Mental Health Act Update by Professor Sir Simon Wessely

Do you know why, when and how the Mental Health Act will be revised? Are you highly confident in assessing a patient who takes novel psychoactive substances yet has a negative result on drug testing? Do you have experience of treating depression  using ketamine? If not, this conference provides the perfect one-stop CPD opportunity to update your knowledge of core psychiatric topics such as the Mental Health Act, depression and substance misuse. We have crafted a special programme which also brings you new perspectives to enhance your clinical practice and challenge your thinking in sleep, nutrition and occupation. Through opportunities to interact with our guest speakers during sessions and breaks, we guarantee you will learn something new. Due to popular demand, we will once again have the conference pop-up library where you can browse/borrow books (fiction and non-fiction) related to conference presentations.
