This CPD conference focuses on transforming mental health support for children and young people, ensuring early intervention, and ensuring effective interagency working. The conference will look at national developments, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and how CAMHS has had to adapt and innovate to provide effective care, and will also focus on suicide prevention and safeguarding.

Join us for this full-day online conference to hear updates and best practice advice on improving mental health support in schools following the development of NHS mental health support teams which are now in place in around 4,700 schools and colleges across the country, with 287 expert teams offering support to children experiencing anxiety, depression, and other common mental health issues.


“Probable mental health problems among six to 16-year-olds in England have risen from around one in nine in 2017 to around one in six in 2021. Around two in five six to 16-year-olds have also experienced a deterioration in their mental health since 2017..”

NHS England 11 May 2022

“What we’ve seen across our frontline services in UK schools is rising numbers of young people struggling with anxiety, self-harm, eating difficulties and suicidal thoughts.”
