Global Mental Health Research Network - Launch Workshop

Global Mental Health Research Network - Launch Workshop

 

February 27, 2017
Informatics Forum

If you have an interest in global mental health, please join us for a full-day launch workshop of the new Global Mental Health Research Network at the University of Edinburgh, an initiative funded by the University of Edinburgh Academic Networking Fund.

This launch is to welcome interested staff,  students and practitioners to the network and gather University-wide expertise on Global Mental Health. A ‘lightning talks’ format will enable wide participation and presentations grouped in chaired-panels to generate inter-disciplinary conversations and research questions.

As a new academic network, we are keen to encourage wide participation including colleagues exploring how their current work might interface with the field of global mental health, clinicians/practitioners and those with lived experiences of mental health problems.

Call for abstracts

A five-minute ‘lightning talks’ format and poster presentations will enable wide participation and provide space for debate and discussion. Presentations will be grouped in chaired-panels to generate inter-disciplinary conversations and research questions.   Presenters are asked to focus either on a specific and defined aspect of their research or on an idea for future work that might link to global mental health. We would also welcome other forms of presentation (for example, posters, videos).

If you would like to present on an aspect of your research interests or on your interest in global mental health, please indicate in the registration form and provide an abstract and return this by noon on February 13th, 2017.
