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.
