Mental Health Crisis Summit

Royal Free Hospital School Of Medicine
Rowland Hill Street
London NW3 2PF

A one-day conference on the crisis in mental health and what must be done to stop it
There is a crisis in mental health services in the UK. It's time to act
Almost 7000 mental health nurses were lost from 2009 to 2018. Meanwhile, the number of doctors in specialist psychiatric training fell by 20%, and beds available for patients with serious mental health issues fell by over 8000.
That's why we're holding a one-day conference in September this year to take a closer look at the mental health crisis - what's driving it, how government decisions have let it worsen over time, and what action we can take to set things right.

Hosted by Health Campaigns Together, Keep Our NHS Public and Mental Health Time For Action

Tickets: Unwaged/Low Pension: £5.00 Standard: £10.00 Solidarity: £20.00

Special showing of Under The Knife film

Royal Spa Centre Cinema
Newbold Terrace,
Leamington Spa
CV32 4HN

A chance for health workers and campaigners to see the new feature-length documentary - UNDER THE KNIFE - a film that uncovers the systematic dismantling of the NHS in England through cuts, closures, underfunding and privatisation.
This showing is sponsored by Unite West Midlands Ambulance Branch, so entry is FREE.
Award-winning film director Ken Loach says:
"UNDER THE KNIFE shows the vital importance of the NHS to society and exposes the dark threats facing it. But most important of all, the film gives hope to those who are campaigning to keep the NHS safe for our children. You just have to see it"
More on the film and the crowdfunder appeal
