    Following our successful network launch in October 2021 - staff, people with lived experience, voluntary sector partners and colleagues across the system will come together to share insights, learning and practical examples of improving safety in mental health, with a particular focus on reducing racial inequalities.

    What to expect:

    • Co-chairs Dr Muj Husain, Clinical Director for Mental Health, HIN, and Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, and Christine Kapopo, Associate Director of Nursing at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, will welcome us and guide us through the session
    • Experiential lens: You will hear from patients, carers and staff on their experience of mental health safety and racial inequalities
    • Innovations in practice: You will have chance to hear directly from colleagues about leading examples of work locally
    • Stimulating conversation: We want to hear your insights, experiences and challenges in mental health safety and create space for you to connect with colleagues across the system

    What do I gain by joining?

    You will take away a range of practical examples, ideas and techniques in improving safety in mental health, ready to share with colleagues and test locally.
