About

This is our fourteenth annual mental health conference at Magee campus. This conference will provide an opportunity to enhance the wealth of experience and knowledge that is gained through the exchange of ideas with conference delegates, within the mental health field and from the wider network of disciplines working within our schools and communities both statutory and voluntary.
