Description

Let's Talk: Mental Health

The King's Think Tank would like to invite you to a panel discussion on ''My Mind Matters Too''. The aim of our event will be to bring together experts from varied backgrounds – think tanks, education, academia, politics, civil service - to discuss the important and topical question in contemporary Mental Health Policy – which is ‘what more can be done by the government and our educational institutions to support 18-25-year-olds with dealing with their mental health?’

A staggering, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year with an increasing 75% of cases being established by the age of 25. Young people in comparison to any other age group are subject to an incredible amount of pressure growing up; facing issues such as exams, relationships, bullying and peer pressure, body image, financial worries, responsibilities as parents or carers - the list goes on - it is no wonder that CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services) are struggling to meet demand across the country.

So the biggest question we are left with is, how can we prevent this?

Please join us in support of University Mental Health Day.

Featuring guest speakers:

- Dr. Nicola Byron, Founder of Student Minds, Lecturer in Psychology at King's College London.

- Caroline Hounsell, Director of Partnerships for Mental Health First Aid England.

- Charlotte Furber, Policy Advisor from MIND.

- Jo Moriarty, Senior Research Fellow and Deputy Director of the Social Care Workforce Research Unit at the Policy Institute at King's College London.

- Wilna Gracias, King's Health and Wellbeing Senior Team Member.
