From October 24-28th 2022, MQ Mental Health Research will be hosting the eighth annual Mental Health Science Festival (MHSF), once again supported by Wellcome. The MHSF is one of the largest international scientific meetings dedicated to mental health science, bringing together experts from around the globe to tackle the biggest challenges in mental health. This year, thanks to the support of Wellcome, tickets are FREE!
The festival will bring together researchers, practitioners, people with lived experience of mental illnesses and policy-makers working across the mental health science field. The aim is to provide a platform for sharing knowledge, experiences, and to network widely.
Topics at the festival include:
Cross sectoral collaborations to improve mental health for all
Mental health of underserved and marginalized populations
Applications of digital technologies in mental health
Premature mortality and mental health
Career paths in mental health research
Each session will feature expert panel discussions, Q&A’s and breakout discussion rooms. Tickets are free to join this fully virtual event, but for those who can’t make it, symposiums will all be available to catch up on MQ’s YouTube channel. Further speakers will be announced on MQ’s Twitter and LinkedIn pages over the coming weeks.
