Equal North network event : ‘The welfare system and mental health’

Thursday, 4 October, 2018 - 10:00 to 15:45
King’s House Conference Centre, Sidney Street, Manchester, M1 7HB

This Equal North workshop will bring together policy-makers, practitioners and researchers to explore the relationship between mental health and the welfare system.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Dame Margaret Whitehead
  • WH Duncan, Chair Professor of Public Health University of Liverpool
  • Gregor Henderson, National Lead for Wellbeing and Mental Health, Public Health England.

The workshop will focus on how the welfare system can 1) help promote the employment and social inclusion of people with mental health problems, and 2) promote good mental health.

The event also aims to establish how we can build better evidence to support local action for promoting mental health and the employment of people with mental health problems, and to identify future research priorities on mental health and welfare.

Registration is FREE and lunch will be provided
