Attend a lecture in the Insights Public Lecture Programme.
Professor Sir Simon Wessely, King’s College London
Tuesday 27th February, 17:30-18:45
The former President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, knighted for services to psychological medicine and military health, is the first psychiatrist to become president of the Royal Society of Medicine. In this lecture he reflects on over-reporting and under-resourcing: whether over-awareness of mental ill health will sink an under-resourced service.
