‘What is the future of UK psychiatry?’ is a one-day conference, the third to be held at the University by the Critical Psychiatry Network.
Following successful conferences in 2013 and 2014, and continuing concerns about the nature, provenance and consequences of contemporary psychiatric practice, the Critical Psychiatry Network has organised a further opportunity for psychiatrists to consider how their practices might develop. There will also be ample opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues. The conference will be preceded by a dinner on the evening of Wednesday 15 April.
