Science and Mental Health

· London

The SRUK London constituency is pleased to present this free to attend event on the wellbeing and mental health of researchers in academia.

We will have three outstanding experts followed by Q&A and a collaborative roundtable. We will listen about the most usual mental health disorders that affect researchers in academia, the neurobiology behind them, and the strategies that many universities are setting up to help their staff. This will be a great opportunity to evaluate your own wellbeing, learn about the tools available to support you, and raise awareness of mental health disorders among your colleagues.
