2015 Critical Psychiatry Network conference
9.30–10.15am Perspectives on the Future of Psychiatry – Peter Kinderman, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Liverpool and author of A Prescription for Psychiatry: Why We Need a Whole New Approach to Mental Health and Wellbeing
11.30–12.15pm Sir Simon Wessley, Professor of Psychological Medicine, Institute of Psychiatry and President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists
(Dr Wesseley’s talk seems to have been ‘Crisis – What Crisis?’, meaning that he was in agreement with the CPN about the harms of overdiagnosis)
I have talked with several professionals and non-professionals who attended, and not one mentioned mental health services funding being discussed at any time during the whole conference.
