The London Mental Health Carers’ Network brings together anyone caring for a person affected by mental ill health (including young people, adults of working age and older people) and mental health professionals working with carers in London to share information, ideas and good practice.

We face challenging times ahead – but out of challenge comes opportunity. The aims of this meeting are to ensure that:

  • An effective strategy is in place for London’s mental health carers
  • Carers and carers services across London are in a strong position  in 2010 and beyond
  • The needs of carers and services for all age groups are considered

The meeting will include a short presentation on older people’s Mental Health issues and Dementia, discussion, an interactive workshop and informal networking.

Who should attend? Carers, service users, mental health professionals working with carers and families, carer representatives on LITs/Mental Health Partnerships,  LINKs, Foundation Trusts, user-carer forums.

Carers and Mental Health Professionals working with older people are cordially invited to attend.

20 places will be reserved for carers until 5 July
