Day 1, Keynote 1 starts with a keynote address from Sir Norman Lamb, Chair of the Children and Young People's Mental Health Coalition (CYPMHC) and Clare Stafford, CEO, Charlie Waller Trust and Vice Chair, CYPMHC. They will be joined by Will Reed, Youth Advisor at Boys In Mind/Girls Mind Too.
The pandemic has caused significant disruption to the lives of children, young people and their families and created numerous challenges for practitioners delivering mental health services during this time. However, this unprecedented situation has also provided an opportunity for us to learn, adapt and grow our offerings and Clare and Sir Norman will take this opportunity to look at some of these learnings, and what the future of mental health services for children and young people might look like.
