Event Details
Scottish PD Network Conference

Wednesday 19th October 2016

The Glasgow City Hotel

36 Cambridge Street, Glasgow, G2 3HN 

'The Royal College of Psychiatrists (Scotland) has commissioned a shortlife working group to think about issues around personality disorder in Scotland. The group has representation from users and carers and various professional groupings. 

I am delighted to report that they will be sharing some of their findings and looking to hear the opinions of attendees at this conference. The issues they are looking at are around teaching, training, services, therapies, research and users and carers perspective - exactly the sort of thing that the Scottish PD Network is interested in!

This will be a useful conference for service users, carers and professionals working (or interested in) the issues around Personality Disorder.
