FPH Annual Conference and Exhibition 2015

When: 23 & 24 June 2015

The Faculty of Public Health (FPH) conference is an ideal event for public health specialists to debate, network and engage with peers nationally and internationally.

We are delighted to announce that Professor Sir Simon Wessely, President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, and Anne Longfield OBE, Children’s Commissioner for England, will this year address delegates on issues relating to mental health and child health respectively.

The conference, entitled the Politics of Healthy Change, will take place at Sage, NewcastleGateshead. With just weeks to go until the conference we are pleased to announce our programme and invite you to attend this key event in the public health calendar.

With public health now firmly embedded in local authorities, our programme has much to interest councillors, consultants and practitioners as well as academics and trainees. Please look at the conference pages on the FPH website for further information. The conference will open on the morning of the 23 June with nearly 30 pre-conference workshops and special interest group meetings, as well as the launch of our film festival.

While much of the programme will focus on the 12 priorities outlined in FPH's manifesto, the opening plenary on the afternoon of the 23 will focus on mental health. We are expecting an engaging presentation with the opportunity for delegate Q&A. It will be led by Sir Simon Wessely, along with Jenny Edwards CBE, Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation, and Poppy Jaman, Chief Executive, Mental Health First Aid.
