The University is hosting its inaugural annual mental health research conference with our partner, The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust on Wednesday 8 July.

The University’s partnership with the Trust is expanding and the theme of the event is Working Together, Making a Difference. It will bring together colleagues from the University and the Trust in a way that will mutually benefit clinical practice and research.

The aim is to make a real difference to the lives of people suffering with mental health problems, to promote resilience and positive mental health. The event will also create opportunities to form collaborative groups around mental health issues.

The themes of the conference are: Understanding People’s Experience of Mental Health, Building Resilience and Positive Mental Health and Making a Difference: Research Methods and Impact.

The event is being held at our Colchester Campus on 8 July from 9.30-4.30. Book a place using Eventbrite.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.
