Save the date: Founder’s Day 2019 to focus on anxiety

Founder’s Day, St Patrick’s Mental Health Services’ prestigious annual conference celebrating excellence in clinical practice in mental health, will this year be held on Friday, November 29th 2019 in St Patrick’s University Hospital, Dublin 8, with talks and lectures focusing on the theme of anxiety.

Each year, Founder’s Day is scheduled to coincide with the birthday of St Patrick’s University Hospital founder – Jonathan Swift. Swift was a pioneer in recognising that people experiencing mental health difficulties required a specialist service to provide care, treatment and a voice. One year after his death, in 1746, St Patrick’s Hospital was founded – not only the first psychiatric hospital to be built in Ireland, but one of the very first in the world.

This annual conference brings together national and international academics, clinicians, members of multi-disciplinary teams and service users. It is also a major event in the Irish CPD calendar.

More details about the conference including conference programme, speakers, CPD accreditation, as well as how to purchase tickets will be available in the coming weeks.
