The afternoon is intended to brief GPs and other primary care health professionals on the latest in terms of adult mental health services within East Surrey. The aim is to refresh knowledge and present new approaches on hot topics, risk assessment and management of mental health problems in East Surrey, as well as to update on local services available to Primary Care. As there has not been anything like this for a long time locally, the sessions are intended to be short, covering main and relevant points. More information and a confirmed timetable will be made available nearer the time, but a provisional timetable can be viewed on the Eventbrite page below.

Please note that this event will be filmed, although there will be a designated seating area for anyone not wanting to be, and a light lunch will be provided.
