Eating Disorders: Support for the Frontline Conference
After a sold out first conference last year, we’re delighted to bring “Eating Disorders: Support for the Frontline” back to Birmingham.
This year's conference runs from Wednesday 21 to Thursday 22 November 2018.
Frontline is designed for family members and for those working with patients on a daily basis. It aims to give those caring for people with eating disorders a place to come together, hear from experts by profession and experience, and learn new skills to help them both support those suffering and take care of their own wellbeing.
We are excited to announce that by popular demand, we’re adding breakout sessions to the programme, with workshops covering topics such as the often difficult transition between child and adolescent mental health services and adult services, and support for specific diagnoses including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder.
Who should attend?
- Anyone who is caring for someone with an eating disorder; family members, partners, friends or guardians
- Medical professionals e.g. GPs, Junior Doctors, Psychiatrists, or Nurse Practitioners.
- Mental health professionals, e.g. Clinical Psychologists, Counsellors, Peer Support Workers, Occupational Therapists or Social Workers.
- School or University wellbeing/ pastoral staff
- Psychology Students e.g. Clinical Doctorate Students or PhD students
