The flyers and booking form have been distributed for our next event – our annual visit to the Conference Centre at the LACE in Liverpool on Tuesday 26th January 2016.
As has been the case for the last few years, the emphasis at the LACE event is very much on AMHP practice issues, with the morning devoted to overlooked and emerging case law as it impacts directly on AMHP practice.
These events have been well-received over the recent years – as much because AMHPs have the opportunity to share practice from across a diverse range of settings as much as it is a chance to develop legal and practical knowledge. Mark Cooper – practising AMHP and Lecturer on the AMHP and BIA programmes at the University of Manchester will be devising and presenting the case material.
In the afternoon we are very pleased to announce that we have a presentation from Michael Brown – also known as the Mental Health Cop – the prolific blogger on matters relating to policing and mental health. Michael’s blogging and campaigning role have placed him at the heart of the debate on practice in Mental Health Act assessments.
There is no charge to attend for members of AMHPA – the booking form can be downloaded from the Future events page.
