The School of Law, Social and Behavioural Sciences is proud to launch an exciting series of public lectures, workshops and panel discussions entitled Conversations about Mental Health and the World We Live In.

Together with a number of internationally renowned external speakers, national charity leaders, and experts by experience, mental health experts at Kingston University will engage in a series of discussions and workshops on the topic of mental ill health and wellness. 

The topics will range from understanding the causes and proposing solutions to the mental health crisis of our time, examining well-being of young people and carers, whether our modern-life work is detrimental to our well-being, how religious communities are engaging with the topic of mental ill health and the impact of the Brexit crisis on psychological well-being.

The first Conversation is entitled Explaining psychological distress and the mental health crisis of our times and will be chaired by Dr Ana Nikčević from the Department of Psychology.

Her guests will include: 

  • Professor Paula Reavey, Professor of Psychology and Mental Health at London South Bank University 
  • Dr Derek Tracey, a consultant psychiatrist and Clinical Director at Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, London and senior lecturer at King's College London and UCL
  • Sheena Crankson, founder of FastMinds Adult ADHD/ASD Support Kingston
  • Seth Hunter, co-founder of the Mental Fight Club and the Dragon cafe

They will discuss the causes of mental ill health and the current mental health crisis in the wider society. Audience participation will be encouraged.
