Sexual Violence and Mental Health

Event Information

As mental health professionals our patient population are disproportionately affected by sexual violence. Hughes et al, in their recent editorial in Epidemiology and Psychiatric Services: ‘Sexual violence and mental health services: a call to action’ recommend a wider focus on sexual violence as part of routine care. 

Join our annual Women's Mental Health conference to consider how our mental health services can better support this call to action. 

Learning objectives:

  • To understand the role that sexual violence may play in our patients’ presentations, within a broader context of complex trauma.
  • To become comfortable with routine enquiry about sexual violence.
  • To understand the services and referral pathways available to patients following disclosure of sexual violence, both within and outside of mental health services.

Primarily mental health professionals but will also be of relevance to all those working with those who have experienced sexual violence. 

Fees include catering during scheduled programme breaks but do not include accommodation.
