Conference 2011


About the 2011 Conference

The inaugural conference conference organised by the University Department for Mental Health at Bournemouth University and the Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust took place on 10th June 2011.

The UDMH, based in BU’s School of Health and Social Care, was created to bring practitioners and academics together to undertake projects that lead to service improvement. It also supports the involvement and participation of service users and their carers in developing local services.

This first annual conference followed the theme ‘Engagement in Life: Promotiong Wellbeing in Mental Health’ through invited presentations and keynote addresses.

This one-day event was held at BU’s Executive Business Centre (EBC) in Holdenhurst Road, Bournemouth, situated near the town’s mainline rail station and coach/bus interchange.

This inaugural event was very well received – follow the ‘conference presentations’ tag for details of the keynote presentations.
