UCS Annual Lecture 2016 - Review

Joined by lead speaker, Professor Sir Simon Wessely, the lecture unpicked and unraveled the themes of whether there is a cultural shift towards over-medicalising everyday experiences.  It was also discussed within learning and educational contexts as to whether there are benefits for Universities, schools and colleges in offering students additional provision. 

As with all our events, there was lots of stimulating discussions and (polite) disagreements. It seems that with mental health access being such a topical issue there is much needed to be done by government, policy makers and providers in considering new strategies to meet the growing needs of the population. Clearly, there is good work being done across various support services and it was heartening to see such a strong turnout in a sell-out 200 person capacity event.

Videos will be made available shortly via the website - stay tuned!
