With the support of Public Health England and the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, Association of Mental Health Providers will be hosting a free engagement event with workshops on mental health and prevention.
The purpose of the event is to engage with key stakeholders including voluntary sector providers, commissioners, local public health teams and elected local authority Mental Health Champions. There will be presentations from Public Health England on the Prevention Concordat for Better Mental Health, Centre for Mental Health on Suicide Prevention, and two examples of VCSE engagement at the local level looking at prevention planning and health equalities/inequalities.
The presentations will be followed by workshop sessions to discuss the voluntary sector’s role in mental health prevention to reduce health inequalities, considering barriers and disadvantages faced by protected communities. FaithAction has been contributing to this project to raise awareness of the role that faith communities are playing in mental health promotion.
