The PMHA will be at the Royal College of Paediatrics conference (28th April)

A short post to say that the PMHA is going to be at the annual Royal College of Paediatrics meeting on Tuesday 28th April 2020.

The PMHA session is linked with the British Association of Paediatricians in Audiology (BAPA).

The theme of the PMHA / BAPA joint session is ‘difference and self’. Sound intriguing? Why not come along to find out more.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Do you remember last year’s PMHA annual meeting?

If you remember a particularly interesting presentation or want to refresh your memory, you can now find all the presentations from last years meeting on the ‘Resources‘ page of this website.

This year’s meeting is just weeks away!

This year, Dr Karen Street, representative for Child Mental Health at RCPCH, will be there during the whole meeting. This is a great opportunity to shape the future for multi-disciplinary work.

The RCPCH drew up a Manifesto before the recent election. The RCPCH asked the new government to :

Adopt a whole systems approach to both the prevention of mental illness and the promotion of good wellbeing. This should include a commitment to providing training for all child health professionals to support children and young people that present with mental health problems in non-mental health settings.

*** Also new for the annual meeting this year – there will be a wide range of poster presentations by trainees covering some really interesting topics ***

The meeting is fast approaching!
