Mind, state and society 1960-2010: History of psychiatry and mental health in Britain
This event will take a detailed look at the history of psychiatry and mental health during the distinct period of 1960-2010. In the past decade, social media, financial crises and COVID-19 have moved us to a new era in mental health. Experts in this meeting will review the half-century and investigate what happened to peoples’ mental health during this time within the broader social context. This meeting is organised in partnership with HoPSIG RCPsych.
