Association of Mental Health Providers will be hosting an engagement event on Mental Health and Prevention on Thursday 28 February in London, as part of their work on the Prevention Concordat for Better Mental Health,

The events seek to engage with key stakeholders including VCSE providers, Commissioners, Local Public Health Teams, Elected Local Authority Mental Health Champions, and will have 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.
