With larger than ever numbers of offenders experiencing mental health issues and the suicide rate in prisons rising year-on-year to a 2017 record high of 113, the need for improved mental health care for offenders is clear. This conference is designed to enable learning through case studies, research sharing and multi-agency networking. If your service could benefit from refining your approach to self-harm, substance abuse, crisis management or even improving continuity across the stepped care model, then this unique training event is for you.
