St Patrick’s Mental Health Services (SPMHS) is delighted to announce our 2023 Founder’s Day conference on Friday, 1 December.

Save the date for our annual Founder’s Day conference, which recognises and fulfils the legacy of our founder, Jonathan Swift, an Irish pioneer in mental healthcare.

The theme of our 2023 Founder’s Day conference is the mental health of migrants.

We invite academics, healthcare professionals and clinicians, and those supporting migrants, such as caregivers, volunteers, and aid workers, to attend the conference, as the discussions and information shared will be particularly useful.  

This conference will be held online, with registration opening shortly.

Speakers and agenda

The speakers and agenda for our 2023 Founder’s Day conference will be confirmed soon.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

CPD points are being sought from the Irish College of General Practitioners (ICGP), the Psychological Society of Ireland (PSI) and the Irish Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (IACP). The number of CPD points available will be announced at a later date.
