Derek Caren, Recovery Focus (the national group of mental health and substance misuse charities of which Richmond Fellowship is part of) group chief executive, will be addressing conference delegates and sharing information on our crisis model and our successful place of safety scheme held in conjunction with the Home Office.
We will also be sharing the stories of Harry and Sarah who both accessed our crisis house in Leicestershire when facing a mental health crisis as an alternative to hospitalisation.
Derek Caren said: “We’re very proud to be speaking at the GovKnow conference about mental health and sharing with other organisations and thought leaders our approach to mental health crisis.
“We’re particularly pleased to be sharing the stories of Harry and Sarah, two fantastic individuals who were supported through their mental health crisis at our brand new crisis house and whom now volunteer with us to support other people experiencing mental health problems.”
The conference is an opportunity for conference delegates to take a rounded look at mental health and share the latest thinking, innovations and improvements that are being made in the field of mental health.
The event takes place as a report released by the King’s Fund stating that cuts to adult mental health services have started damaging the quality of care given to patients. Find out more here.
