About this course

The Anna Freud Centre is launching a year-long free programme of public seminars  and inviting all to join us as we contemplate the future of children and young people’s mental health. The Transformation Seminars is an inaugural series of free lectures open to the public to celebrate the Anna Freud’s Centre’s new building, the Kantor Centre of Excellence (N1 9JH) and ask some of the most eminent names in mental health what would most contribute to a transformation of our approach to mental health. 

To be notified when the next seminars become available to book on to, please join our training mailing list: sign up to our training mailing list to hear about new dates.


This seminar

The change of political administration offers an opportunity to reflect on the last four years of children’s mental health reform and consider the legacy of Future in Mind, the Five Year Forward View on Mental Health and the NHS Long-Term Plan.

Marc will ask whether the reform is transforming the system in a direction that will address the future challenges that those supporting children and young people’s mental health will face. Further, he’ll consider the action that might need to be taken to ensure we are building a system fit for the future. In doing so, Marc will suggest that we need to see children’s mental health reform as an inter- and intra-generational programme of social change.
