FFLM Mental Health Training Day

The overlap between mental health and the criminal justice system is well-established. Dealing with detainees or complainants with mental health issues often requires complex decision making, knowledge of mental health law and multi-agency involvement. The FFLM is pleased to announce its first Mental Health Study Day on Saturday 9th March 2013. The aim of the day is to give delegates confidence in dealing with these complex issues whether in Custody or a SARC. There will be presentations on risk assessment, s136 MHA assessments, updates on major mental illness and more. Speakers are from a wide range of backgrounds and include Police, Psychiatrists and a Psychologist. To download a provisional programme and to book your place, use the links on the right. The deadline for bookings is Friday 22 February 2013.
