England to host mental health leadership14th March 2013
It has been announced England will host the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership exchange in 2014.
Care services minister Norman Lamb has accepted an invitation for England to host the 2014 event, which will help the NHS, local government and partners to speed up improvements to services, and support and improve mental health services by learning from experts from across the world.
In addition, the event will provide the NHS with an opportunity to showcase innovations taking place in England on mental health, through programmes Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) and Time to Change.
The exchange will see healthcare professionals from several countries arriving in England to see a range of activities and share their experiences with staff in this country.
There will also be opportunities for people to discuss and share best practice.
The exchange will take place in June 2014 and will be the second time England has hosted the event.
It will aim to build long term collaboration between leaders in mental health in the NHS, local government, charities and user organisations, allowing the continued sharing of information and learning for the benefit of people living with mental health problems.
Mr Lamb said the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership exchange will be an important opportunity for healthcare professionals working in mental health to learn from what experts are doing across the world.
