- Date and time Tue 5 Oct 2021 from 8:45am to 4:05pm
- Location Royal Society of Medicine
- Organised by Psychiatry, Royal College of Psychiatrists History of Psychiatry Special Interest Group
This event will take a detailed look at the history of psychiatry and mental health during the distinct period of 1960-2010.
This time period is characterised by the increasing dominance of ideologies of social liberalism, free markets and practices of economic neo-liberalism and globalisation. It also coincides with de-institutionalisation and community care in mental health care.
In the past decade, social media, financial crises and COVID-19 have moved us to a new era in mental health. It is timely therefore to review the half-century and investigate what happened to peoples’ mental health during this time within the broader social context.
- Understand the historical and social context of modern British psychiatry.
- Enhance knowledge of the mental health policy context and the roots of reforms of mental health care.
- Understand the clinical implications of mental health developments to special groups of mental health ill populations.
This meeting is organised in partnership with HoPSIG RCPsych
