‘Individuals with Complex Emotional Needs’ describes those who might have been diagnosed with personality disorder. It is recognised that mental health service provision for this group is in need of transformation, given serious concerns about quality, accessibility, fragmentation of services, and stigma and pessimism often encountered by service users.
This session will begin with a presentation of two recent studies from researchers at Kings College London about services and good practice for individuals with Complex Emotional Needs. One study looked at the views of 50 professionals and the other was co-produced with 30 people who have used community mental health services.
Following the presentation, small discussion groups will give opportunities to think about the study findings in relation to your own practice and local services, to help shape how we can work together to better serve individuals with Complex Emotional Needs’.
Audience: This event is aimed at professionals and volunteers from all sectors who work with people experiencing Complex Emotional Needs and may be of particular interest for workers in community mental health services. People with lived experience of CEN and multiple disadvantage are also welcome to join, to learn about the research being presented and contribute to discussions.
