MILES TO GO: Improving transitional mental health care for young people across Europe

Transition through different mental health services is a major challenge in the UK and across Europe. This event is for anyone concerned about this issue. We will be presenting the key findings from MILESTONE, the first Europe-wide research project focused on transition from child and adolescent mental health services.
  • Hear from young people and sector-leading UK and international speakers about the importance of changing mental health practice and support in the UK and across Europe
  • Gain a better understanding of wider issues linked with transition, such as service structures, policies, training of health care professionals and ethics of transitioning
  • Discuss the next steps in shaping policy, service provision and research regarding transition

We hope you can join us.
