Wellbeing and Self-Care for Mental Health Professionals

This fascinating conference will take place in the historic city of Edinburgh. Why not extend
your stay and take in some of Edinburgh's many tourist attractions?

If you work in the field of mental health you will understand how important it is to look after yourself. However, despite knowing this, you may find that you spend so much time and energy helping others that thinking about your own wellbeing gets pushed to the back of the queue.

Self-Care Conference

Our 'National Conference on Wellbeing and Self-Care for Mental Health Professionals' will focus on this vital topic, highlighting various aspects relevant to mental health professionals and other allied health workers. It offers a professional forum to explore the personal and professional challenges of self-care in this unique and challenging working environment.

Fantastic speakers and conference programme

We are delighted to have lined up a fantastic group of expert speakers from a wealth of healthcare backgrounds to speak at the conference. The conference programme will consist of three keynote sessions with a choice of workshops available, so you can tailor your day to meet your individual interests.

When and where?

The conference will take place on Friday 22 November 2013 at Radisson Blue, Royal Mile, Edinburgh
