FiMT sponsors King’s Centre for Military Health Research 2019 Veterans’ Mental Health Conference

Military Mental Health Annual Conference Speakers and Programme Announced

Forces in Mind Trust is sponsoring the King’s Centre for Military Health Research Annual Veterans’ Mental Health Conference, for a fourth consecutive year.

The 2019 event, entitled “Evidence, Innovation and Practice”, has a stellar line up of UK and international speakers, including a contribution by the BBC’s Defence Correspondent, Jonathan Beale, on the media’s view of mental health and the military.

Tickets are now available. Access all the conference details and booking information, including the concessionary ticket rate for Cobseo Full and Associate members, here.

Ray Lock, Chief Executive of the Forces in Mind Trust, said:

“This is the fourth year that Forces in Mind Trust has sponsored the Veterans’ Mental Health Conference and we are proud to do so. The subject for the 2019 conference embodies what FiMT is all about: evidence leading to lasting change.”

“As a Trust we can fund an abundance of research; but unless our recommendations are put into practice, the potential impact of our work is constrained and we will be unable to fully achieve our aim of enabling all ex-Service personnel and their families make a successful and sustainable transition.”
