Mental Health Seminars for 2018

The Child Outcomes Research Consortium (CORC) is pleased to announce the launch of their seminar series for 2018:

Should mental health service seek to cure mental ill health? If not, what are they there for?

Join them to discuss what the research can tell us about whether children and young people are being helped by mental health services. Contribute to the debate about how we respond to the data, how we define and measure a positive outcome, and how we communicate about the scope and focus of treatment.

Open to mental health and education professionals, service leads, commissioners and anyone interested in the future of children and young people’s mental health services.
