What's covered?

  • The ‘mental health condition families’ - looking at them in a new way.
  • How to navigate different diagnostic options - and more importantly, how to explain these with a narrative that helps patients to get better.
  • Therapies and drug dilemmas: we'll cover everything from psychological and talking therapy, to drug-based treatments and self-care and promoting physical health.
  • Creating new narratives: for a range of mental health disorders we consider how could we describe it to help patients understand their experience? How does someone with this condition think, feel and behave? For many patients, this is a key first step in management. Bread and butter conditions like depression and anxiety - focusing on practical skills we can use with patients, promoting self-care, great resources you can share and pitfalls to avoid.  
  • Strategies for common challenges like repeat attenders and personality disorder.
  • ‘Microskills’ like behavioural activation, problem solving and self-compassion that you can start using with patients the next day!
  • The ‘risky’ stuff: risk assessment, mental health ‘emergencies’ and the impact of addiction. Special groups including children and the perinatal period.
  • Well-being of health professionals and how we can look after ourselves.
