Mental health across the life course

NPNR twitter logoThe theme for this year’s Network for Psychiatric Nursing Research conference is Mental health across the life course. We’re convening in Nottingham on September 15th and 16th, and I’m very much looking forward. With help from André Tomlin (of the Mental Elf Service) we’re aiming to organise some pre-conference social media events: watch out for more on this, including via the new @npnrconf Twitter account. We’re also hoping to add some social media to the conference itself, including streaming. Very exciting.

Best of all, of course, is to come along to the conference as a delegate. This is an event which prides itself on its friendliness. Here are the keynote speakers:

  • Luciana Berger MP – Former Shadow Minister (Mental Health)
  • Elaine Hanzak, Inspirational speaker and author on perinatal mental health
  • Professor John Keady – Professor of Older People’s Mental Health Nursing, University of Manchester
  • Professor Steven Pryjmachuk – Professor of Mental Health Nursing Education, University of Manchester
  • Dr Bryn Lloyd-Evans – Lecturer in Mental Health and Social Care/ CORE Programme Manager, University College London

 

Collaborative care for depression

Happy April. Here’s a new venture for me: blogging for the Mental Elf, part of the National Elf Service. This is a fine site indeed, which André Tomlin set up in 2011 with the aim of helping people find ‘just what you need to keep up-to-date with all of the important and reliable mental health research and guidance’.

Here’s a summary of my first post, which can be read in full by following the link at the bottom.

Ben Hannigan writes his debut blog on the CADET cluster RCT, which investigates the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of collaborative care for depression in UK primary care.
