Come along to insight into autism talk
04 November 2015

Dr Jo Holmes will give an insight into autism when she becomes the latest CPFT expert to address members of the Trust.

The consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist will be speaking at the William Harvey Lecture Theatre, Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 0QQ.

Dr Holmes (pictured) has been the medical director of the renowned Croft Child and Family Unit in Cambridge since 1998. Based at CPFT's Ida Darwin site at Fulbourn, Cambridge, the unit is the only one in the country which provides intensive mental health in-patient and day patient services for children and their families. 

Always a fascinating speaker, Dr Holmes is particularly interested in areas of neuropsychiatry - autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Tourette's Syndrome, and brain injury - as well as learning disability, the impact of parental mental illness, attachment disorders and medical education.

The talk, in association with Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, is free to all CPFT members and will take place on Wednesday, 11 November from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

Members of the Trust are made up of members of the public, past and present service-users, carers, and staff. It is free to join and members can help shape the future of services, take part in surveys and receive regular updates about the work of CPFT.
