National Members' Day is the annual event for our members to hear inspiring speakers from across the mental health sector, find out more about the work of Rethink Mental Illness and have the chance to meet up and share experiences with other members. 

National Members' Day returns as an in-person event this year and will be taking place on Saturday 19 November at the Holiday Inn in Regent's Park London.  

A highlight of the day is the presentation of the annual Rethink Mental Illness awards. Our keynote speaker, Dr Shubulade Smith, will talk about tackling inequality in mental health and improving outcomes. There is also a varied range of afternoon talks, music, a marketplace, and an opportunity to celebrate our 50th anniversary year.  

Reserve your place now by booking via our Eventbrite page or call us on 0121 522 7016.  

If you’d like to take part, but can’t attend in person, we’ll also be sharing content via Facebook Live on our Facebook page.
