New NICE Guidance for the Treatment of Depression: Implications and Evaluation

Saturday 9 September 2017

Depression is the major mental health problem in terms of burden of disease.
After years of preparatory work a new set of NICE guidelines for major depression is about
to be released. This new guidance is destined to affect many of our lives.

This one-day conference will create a forum for a full discussion of the new guideline’s
findings and recommendations and their implications. We will bring together national
and international experts representing key approaches to depression, each of whom will
comment on the new guidance and identify strengths as well as problematic areas.
Experts by experience will also participate in all panels.

We will summarise and integrate the views of both the speakers and the audience as further
feedback to the authors of the guidance as well as NICE.
