Monday 13th May 2024
FiMT Research Centre Conference
The FiMT Research Centre Conference gives a platform to individuals from across service provision, government, and research, presenting topical evidence relevant to the transition process and the experiences of ex-Service personnel and their families.
Veterans’ Mental Health Conference
The health and wellbeing of Veterans, and their families, is a topic frequently discussed in parliament and in the media. The King’s Centre for Military Health Research (KCMHR) has been running a mental health focused conference for many years.
These two conferences will be held consecutively on the 13th and 14th May 2024 at Bush House. The first day will be the FiMT Research Centre conference which will be run along with our partners, RAND Europe. The second day will be the traditional King’s Centre for Military Health Research (KCMHR) Veterans’ Mental Health Conference.
Department of Psychology
This is an informal and friendly conference, designed to bring practitioners and researchers together to talk about student mental health. The conference will create opportunities to present lessons learned from practice and research findings. We will also be carving out plenty of time to talk about plans and ideas, as well as challenges, arising in practice and research. We hope this is an opportunity to learn and to connect.
The three-day conference will focus on creating space for discussion, we have intentionally chosen a venue that gives us multiple smaller rooms, rather than a large lecture theatre. If you are hoping to sit at the back of a lecture hall and be talked at for a few days, I’m sorry, this event is not for you.
It is for you, if you’d like to talk in smaller groups with individuals who are enthusiastic and passionate about student mental health. It is for you if you’d like to connect and collaborate with others working in this world.
We will be running a programme of activities alongside the talks, to give space to be creative, to re-energise and to have structured time to get to know new people.
The conference will be catered, including tea, coffee and lunch every day. There will be a conference dinner on the first evening (10th of June). We have included this in the conference price, as we hope as many people as possible will join us.
The conference schedule is yet to be confirmed, but we expect to do something like:
10th – Midday to 5.30pm (or to 10pm including additional activities and dinner).
11th – 9am – 5.30pm
12th – 9.30am – 3.00pm
Department of Basic and Clinical Neuroscience
This educational meeting is aimed primarily at clinicians who treat patients with diseases of the peripheral nervous system and muscle. It aims to provide practical general clinical up-dates as well as an introduction to the science underlying neuromuscular diseases. It should be of interest to general adult neurologists, clinical neurophysiologists, paediatric neurologists, clinical neuroscientists and allied health professionals, and suitable for both consultants and trainees.
Start time 09.00, finish 17.00. There will be around 10 lectures, each 25 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions, with breaks for lunch and coffee. Programme: to be confirmed around October.
The format will be a hybrid of face-to-face and online webinar. We hope to meet many of you in person, for traditional networking opportunities. Most lecturers will attend in person. To encourage a live audience, we are offering free lunch/coffee for those attending in person. Registration will be the same cost whether you attend in person or virtually. Please specify when booking whether you intend to come in person so we can order catering. So as not to waste food, please inform [email protected] if this changes. The deadline for catering orders is 10 days in advance. For people registering after 16th January to attend in-person, lunch is subject to availability and not guaranteed.
All those registered (both virtual and in-person) will be emailed a link for the virtual event a few days in advance, sent to the email you provide when registering. This link will also allow viewing a recording of the event for a few months afterwards.

Social, Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry Centre
The UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN) will host a 3 day conference from 16th to 18th April 2024, which will take place at the Mermaid Conference and Events Centre in London. The venue is situated between the City and the West End, on the North Bank of the Thames, and enjoys spectacular views towards the Tate Modern, Globe Theatre and the Millennium Bridge, and will celebrate 15 years of the UK Adult ADHD Network, an organisation that has brought adult ADHD into the hearts and minds of mental health professionals in the UK and beyond.
The first day of the conference will reflect on the last few years working in this exciting and rapidly changing field, with the unique backdrop of Covid, and CONSOLIDATE what we have experienced and learnt. The theme of INTEGRATION will be the theme for day 2, with symposia on mental health and somatic comorbidity, ADHD in women and a unique look at different ways that we can integrate a psychosocial focus into our work with patients. Day 3, the theme INNOVATE, will bring us to the cutting-edge of our speciality, looking at the service models of the future, and how digital technology is impacting and influencing the way we work in adult ADHD.
We will also provide a diagnostic assessment and pharmacological treatment update, looking at the latest guidance as to what constitutes a gold standard adult ADHD assessment, as well as changes to the landscape of pharmacological management.
This extensive range of topics will be delivered by prominent opinion leaders and internationally recognised clinical experts and investigators.
This is the first conference UKAAN is running since the dark years of Covid, and we are determined that it will be one to remember!
