Speakers

Our 2024 Mental Health Network Annual Conference and Exhibition will bring together senior leaders from the mental health, learning disability and autism sector for lively discussions on the future of services, to share good practice, horizon scan, and network with their peers.

The coming year brings a range of opportunities and challenges for mental health providers. Organisations are continuing to deliver services whilst facing unprecedented demand, workforce shortages continue and the issue of mental health is competing with other national priorities, with action still needed on the Mental Health Act and parity of esteem more widely. 

Despite this, there is space for change and innovation. This includes an increasingly integrated care landscape with new opportunities for members to influence system-level decisions, the growth of digital and AI, continuing efforts to identify and address health inequalities, and potential changes within parliament as we approach the next election, where we will be making the case for mental health and influencing party manifestos. 

Amid this backdrop, we are inviting members once again to come together, unite, and focus on the shared challenges and opportunities for the mental health sector.
