More than 300 people from across the country will be joining a special conference being organised by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust.
Working With…Personality Disorders will feature a range of renowned experts alongside those with lived experience of such conditions.
The two-day online conference will be the first time CPFT has organised such an event, and further seminars are planned which will focus on other areas of the mental and physical health services provided by the Trust.
Chief Executive Anna Hills said: “I am very proud that our Trust is hosting this conference. At CPFT we have teams and individuals who are leading the way in the treatment and research around personality disorders.
“The conference will be a chance for them to demonstrate that work and also share ideas with others. The fact that fellow clinicians along with patients and carers from across the country will be attending the conference shows how much interest there is in continuing to develop the learning and understanding in this area.”
One of the keynote speakers will be Dr Pamela Peters, a consultant psychiatrist at CPFT who specialises in medical psychotherapy.
Dr Peters said: “Research into personality disorders is still very limited in comparison with other mental health conditions, but we are learning more all the time.
“What I hope the conference will do is bring clinicians, patients and carers together to learn with each other, share ideas and ensure a consistent approach to the treatment and care of those with personality disorders and relational/ emotional difficulties.”
