Why is it important?

Making real advances towards net zero mental health care requires floor to Board leadership.

Our aim through this launch event is to start to cultivate a network and collaborative learning environment for those who have a significant role in driving sustainability and Net Zero efforts within NHS Trusts in England.

The event will provide opportunities to consider how you can implement the report recommendations and lead the required changes within your organisation.

Following the event, we will be hosting a series of webinars for clinical staff, disseminating training videos and launching an online learning platform. We hope that this will provide a stepping stone towards crucial efforts to drive net zero within the NHS’ mental health services.

Who should attend?

This event would be suited to senior leaders within the NHS such as CEOs and Medical Directors as well as those who have a lead role in sustainability and reducing carbon such as the Green Plan lead, environmental officer, or Trust clinical lead for sustainability.

Please register by 8 November to ensure representation for your Trust at the event
