Conferences, public meetings and events.
We host a range of different events through the year including conferences, public engagement events, recruitment fairs and formal meetings.
These provide us with the opportunity to share information, meet with the people we serve and find out about their experiences and views. They also help us to raise mental health awareness, recruit new staff and strengthen our relationships with local partners to benefit the people we serve.
You can find out about our upcoming (and recent) events in the listings below. More information is available by following the links.
