Keynote speaker Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, RT Hon Matt Hancock MP.

The event will bring over 100 senior leaders from the mental health sector together to focus on the future following a year of exciting policy developments.

This year will see the unveiling of the NHS Long-Term Plan and findings of the independent review of the Mental Health Act.

The Network and our members, having played a driving role in influencing these pieces of work, will now come together to focus on the challenges and opportunities ahead for the mental health sector within this new context.

The programme
The mental health sector continues to deliver excellent services in increasingly innovative ways, which will be reflected this in this year’s programme as we include important topics such as implementing the NHS Long-Term Plan and improving the physical health of people with severe mental illness. 

Attendees will hear keynotes from the incoming Chair of NHS England, Lord David Prior, Rt Hon Stephen Dorrell and Claire Murdoch, national mental health director at NHS England. The themes of digital innovation and equality, diversity and inclusion will be embedded throughout the day.

The programme features key figures whose influence and decision making determines the future of mental health services. Download a copy of our event programme to find out more about our breakout sessions and keynote addresses.
