and Policing Conference, Oxford

Tuesday, 5th September, 2017

The Duke of Cambridge will attend the National Mental Health and Policing Conference, hosted by the College of Policing and the National Police Chiefs Council on Tuesday 5th September in Oxford. The Duke, who finished his job as an air ambulance pilot this summer, has pledged to make issues facing first-responders a focus of his work for many years to come.

This conference will be a part of building a new national strategy for the police service on mental health.

At the Conference, His Royal Highness will give a short speech before joining a breakout session with public and police professionals who have been affected by mental health challenges and who are pioneering change in mental health policing. They will be representing organisations ranging from Hampshire Police, the NHS, Safe Horizon, Greater Manchester Police and the College of Policing.

The Duke will then join a workshop on Respond, a new training package developed in the North East to assist agencies in working together to challenge mental health stigma.
