Event Details

What is Birkbeck's Big Ideas?

A series of thought provoking FREE events, designed to inspire and bring world class Birkbeck academics to the local community with this latest installment from Professor Angelica Ronald.

About the workshop

Paranoia is a common experience and it is particularly prevalent in teenagers. What causes experiences such as paranoia, and what does it predict for our future mental health? This talk will discuss the very latest scientific evidence about the characteristics and causes of psychotic-like experiences such as paranoia. It will examine how and why psychotic-like experiences often occur with other challenges such as sleep disturbances and mood problems. Furthermore, where the boundary lies between a healthy and an ill mind will be explored. This latest scientific research offers considerable hope for improving prevention and treatment of mental health difficulties during the teenage years.
