Lectures, talks and seminars
We constantly hear that mental health problems are on the increase in the UK, and last year an Institute for Public Policy Research analysis found that nearly five times as many students disclose mental health conditions to their university than was the case 10 years ago. This week we will open for a frank discussion of whether or not aspects of our society, culture or economy are making us more and more mentally ill. We will look at the structural and background causes of mental health problems in the UK today, and talk about what societal changes might make our society (and our universities) healthier.
