We’re very excited about the trio of speakers we have booked for our Manchester event on Wednesday 9th March.
In the morning we’ll be joined by Mark Neary – a name that will be known to anybody involved in the Mental Capacity Act and DoLS through the landmark case he and his son were involved with. His presentation is titled ‘Getting Steven Home’ and those of you acquainted with the Re Steven Neary; LB Hillingdon v Steven Neary (2011) will know that the process was anything but simple…
In the afternoon we have Michael Linnell, a drugs researcher and specialist who will be presenting on the subject of ‘legal highs’, which we know is becoming an increasing issue for AMHPs – particularly when undertaking assessments in A&E departments and hospital places of safety.
Our second speaker for the afternoon is Professor Linda Gask – a Psychiatrist and academic who has written and presented extensively on the issue of depression, incorporating her own personal experience of the condition, whose presentation for us is titled The Other Side of Silence: a psychiatrist’s experience of depression.
