If you're interested in mental health and want to know more about the topic or would like to find out about our mental health courses, come along to our Mental Health Masterclass.
In the morning, interactive discussions will take you from Hippocratic times right through to the current era to see how our ideas around mental health and illness have developed. You’ll also be thinking about how these ideas influence our views today and asking the question – what is a mental illness? The afternoon will be dedicated to wellbeing. We will look at what mental wellbeing actually means, exploring the Five Ways to Wellbeing, and think creatively about how we can help individuals and communities to boost their resilience and feel good.
