Addressing the Mental Health Crisis National Conference: Managing increasing demand  

Recently the government has agreed to provide £2.3 billion a year toward the improvement of Mental Health services across the UK, this is the largest increase in mental health funding in NHS history, this investment will help 2 million more people to access mental health services by 2023/24.

This comes as critical timing as millions of patients in England face dangerously long waits for mental health care following the sharp increase in people experiencing mental health problems, with 1.6 million waiting for specialised treatment and another 8 million who cannot get on the waiting list

Convenzis are pleased to share details of a brand-new event series which will follow the new funding and service improvement strategy.

The complexity of needs for those requiring mental health services has risen due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As pressure mounts across community services, mental health UEC and inpatient pathways, NHS England has made growing and improving mental health services and services for people with a learning disability and/or autistic people a key priority for 2022/23

Convenzis events are highly regarded for their ability to drive strategic level change and transformation within the healthcare industry. Our events bring together senior healthcare leaders and decision-makers from across the NHS and wider healthcare sector, with the aim of identifying and implementing innovative approaches to address the most pressing challenges facing the industry today.


In addition to extra funding being injected, the NHS has asked mental health systems to:

  • Expand and improve their mental health crisis care provision for all ages: increase the provision of alternatives to A&E and admission
  • Focus on intervention: Utilising the expansion of mental health provider collaboratives across the whole mental health pathway
  • Continue the expansion and transformation of mental health services: Set out in the NHS Mental Health Implementation Plan 2019/20–2023/24
  • Continue to grow and expand specialist care and treatment for infants, children, and young people: increasing the support provided through specialist perinatal teams for infants and their parents up to 24 months
  • Develop a mental health workforce plan to 2023/24: collaborating with mental health providers HEE and partners in the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) and education sectors
  • Continue to use the mental health practitioner ARRS roles: improving the care and treatment for adults, children, and young people in line with NHS Long Term Plan ambitions

This event series will provide a platform for the Mental Health community to exchange practical insights, share best practice and listen to sector leading speakers in a focused and high-value setting.

In support of the sector, all NHS Managers and leaders are provided with complimentary and CPD accredited attendance to this event.
