Mental Health 2017 – Implementing the Five Year forward View

21st September 2017


In honour of Mental Health Awareness Week 2017 – Govconnect are offering a second ticket on all registrations made in the 2nd week of May for £50 – either register your interest via the conference website or contact a member of the team.

Mental Health – Implementing the Five Year forward View conference will be held on the 20th September 2017 at the Royal Society of Medicine, London.

Mental health problems represent the largest single cause of disability in the UK. The cost to the economy is estimated at £105 billion a year – roughly the cost of the entire NHS.

The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health has made an unarguable case for transforming mental health care in England, a single programme, but one which contains numerous different, related elements across the health system for all ages.

Implementing the Five Year Forward View published in mid-2016 was a welcomed and timely roadmap. This conference will outline the core elements of the implementation plan and will review and assess the actions for each of the key objectives.

Confirmed Speakers Include

Tim Kendall
National Clinical Director for Mental Health
NHS England


Gregor Henderson

Public Health England


Professor Dame Sue Bailey DBE
Children and Young Peoples Mental Health Coalition

The ambition for an additional one million people to be in receipt of high-quality care by 2020/21 is a decisive and unprecedented step towards closing the treatment gap for mental health which can only be achieved through the promotion of evidence based best practice and transference of knowledge amongst all NHS settings.

This conference will seek to ensure that the foundations for implementing the five year forward view for mental health are in place with a view to benefitting people of all ages, reflecting the specific needs of all groups from children and young people through to older people.
