Psychological Professions Week

We have all faced so many changes at work and the rest of our lives over the past 18 months. At this time of continuing challenges there are also great opportunities for embedding a more psychological approach across health and care. We hope you will be able to find even a small amount of time to join us to help develop these opportunities by attending some of the virtual events during our second national #PsychologicalProfessionsWeek conference! 

Psychological Professions Week is hosted by the Psychological Professions Network (PPN) England and will present you with an exciting and stimulating programme with morning and afternoon online events. #PsychologicalProfessionsWeek will showcase innovation and inform next steps for psychological healthcare in England.

This is an unmissable event for anyone involved or interested in delivering, planning or receiving, as well as shaping psychological healthcare in the NHS!

15 - 19 November 2021 
Free to attend

Sustainable Mental Healthcare

The interconnected processes of climate change and biodiversity collapse undermine mental health in a variety of ways.   They disproportionately affect vulnerable groups, including persons with pre-existing mental illness, and evoke powerful feelings and thoughts, especially for children and young people.   Mental health services based on the principles of sustainable healthcare emphasize prevention, shape acute services around a triple bottom line of quality, carbon and cost, and employ nature-based solutions where appropriate. Developed in collaboration with the Royal College of Psychiatry Planetary Health and Sustainability Committee(link is external), this course brings together people from across mental health and social care to develop social, environmental and financial sustainability in mental health services, and highlights the leadership role mental health professionals can play in providing healthcare for all within planetary boundaries.
