An Early Intervention Services/First Episode Psychosis Learning and Skills Conference facilitated by Hafal and 1000 Lives Improvement – the national improvement service for NHS Wales delivered by Public Health Wales – takes place on 22nd-23rd October at the Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells.
The conference will include sessions on:
- Interventions that assist recovery
- Family therapy
- Audit and its role in service development
- Psychological Interventions – the role and purpose in EIP
- At-risk mental states – Early Intervention assessment
- New emerging interventions.
Hafal Trustee Mair Elliott will open the conference, sharing her experiences of using Early Intervention Services as a young person. Hafal Up4It Recovery Practitioner Jason Tatton will also be holding a session on the first day, talking about his work with ‘Music to Recovery’.
Alongside Michaela Morris from 1000 Lives, Hafal’s EIS Practice Leader Laura Morgan will be facilitating the conference. Laura said: “The national steering group for early intervention/first episode in psychosis is being supported by Hafal and 1000 Lives to deliver the two-day residential learning and skills programme for EIP/FEP teams from all seven Health Boards in Wales.
“This event is part of a wider training programme to promote the knowledge and skills of the practitioners working within and developing early intervention in psychosis services in Wales. We hope it will provide an excellent opportunity for discussion and for sharing best practice.”
