Yet more updates on my activities…

In the evening, I will be attending a reception on mental health issues with the Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn and the Shadow Minister for Mental Health, Luciana Berger (both of whom have been strong supporters of mental health issues).
On Thursday 10th March, I shall be working at the University (on our project on dementia and human rights) and then discussing a forthcoming BPS publication on depression and low mood.
On Friday, 11th March, I’ll be attending the BPS pre-qualification group’s annual conference in Birmingham , “Community Psychology: Thinking more, speaking more, doing more”, which will discuss ‘… how critical and community approaches to psychology can be applied in interesting and novel ways’.
