Community Diversion and Prison Psychiatry Network

 Community Diversion and Prison Psychiatry Network

Aims of the network

The Community Diversion and Prison Psychiatry Network was launched in October 2009 at the Faculty’s annual conference in Cardiff.  This network is jointly run with the Forensic Faculty. The aims of the network are:


  • To develop a forum for communication for psychiatrists working in prison and in community diversion services.
  • To explore and develop standards and competencies relating to these areas.
  • To identify the nature of mental health service provision and specific training opportunities in these areas.
  • To identify areas of best practice and disseminate them. 
  • To influence care pathways to enable community mental health services to work more effectively with prison mental health teams.
  • To develop links with other stakeholders, such as the Sainsbury’s Centre, Department of Health, the Howard League for penal reform and the Prison reform Trust.
