Conference 2016

The 7th Annual International CMHP Psychiatric Pharmacy Conference took place from 7-9 October 2016 in Bristol.

This year our conference had a cradle to grave theme. We looked at mental health conditions throughout the journey from before birth to end of life – including post-natal conditions, child and adolescent mental health, suicide and its prevention, and dementia.
