We are delighted to announce that, starting in June 2021, the PMHA is running a series of free webinars on children’s and young people’s mental health.
The webinars will run fortnightly on Monday evenings and will cover a range of topics relevant to the RCPCH training curriculum. Paediatric doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, as well as professionals from other medical specialties, are all welcome to attend.
We are excited to be collaborating with several different groups on this project. Half of our sessions will be aimed at general Paediatricians and we will be working with the very popular Thinking Together group to deliver some of these. The other half of our sessions will be run in conjunction with other subspecialty groups within the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), covering particular mental health issues affecting their patient populations.
First Webinar – Monday 7th June, 7:30pm
Our first webinar, run in collaboration with the Thinking Together group, will take place at 7:30pm on Monday 7th June. The focus will be Medically Unexplained Symptoms, and it will be delivered by the wonderful Dr. Virginia Davies, Consultant Paediatric Liaison Psychiatrist at The Whittington Hospital. It’s sure to be an engaging and interesting session and we look forward to welcoming lots of you there.
