This workshop will bring together policy-makers, practitioners and researchers to explore the relationship between mental health and the welfare system.
The workshop will focus on how the welfare system can help promote employment and social inclusion of people with mental health problems, as well as good mental health. The event also aims to establish ways to build better evidence to support local action for promoting mental health and the employment of people with mental health problems. It will also aim to identify future research priorities on mental health and welfare.
Event is free with lunch and refreshments provided. If you have any dietary or access requirements please contact Victoria Morgan.
