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!
(Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th January)
Spread the word! Don’t miss out!
According to this article in the Guardian, four in ten GPs are advising parents of children with mental health problems to pay for private care because NHS services are too overwhelmed to help.
As the sun sets on the last day of 2019, the PMHA would like to wish you a Happy New Year and a great start to the new decade. We hope we can continue to work together in 2020 to help children and young people everywhere lead healthy and happy lives.
If you haven’t already registered, please do come and join us at the PMHA Annual Meeting at the end of January in the lovely Highgate House in Northamptonshire. It’s a great chance to share knowledge and ideas, as well as to meet with colleagues and friends both new and old.
RCEMLearning, the Royal College of Emergency Medicine’s e-learning platform, recently published an article on their website about self harm in young people.
