Event description

Description

Registration is now open for our 2018 Mental Health Science Meeting, which takes place in London on 1-2 February.

The Mental Health Science Meeting is one of the largest international scientific meetings dedicated solely to mental health science – bringing together experts from around the world to take on the major challenges in mental health.

Now in its 4th year, the meeting brings together researchers from across disciplines to explore cutting-edge ways to understand, treat and prevent mental illness. This year’s theme is ‘Towards Prevention and Early Intervention’.

The 2-day programme includes keynote speeches from leading experts in the field, multidisciplinary symposia, a poster session and a panel discussion. The event provides a unique opportunity to showcase ideas and develop collaborative research networks.

Who is it for?

Researchers and experts from all disciplines who have an interest in mental health. We welcome scientists at all stages of their career, as well as other mental health stakeholders, including clinicians, members of the public affected by mental illness, mental health funders and charity representatives.

Speakers include:

The registration cost of £75 for 2 days and £50 for one day, includes refreshments, lunch, drinks and nibbles during the poster session. Places are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis.

Registration closes 12 January 2018.

Poster Submission and Travel Bursaries

We particularly encourage student and early-career researchers to present a piece of recent work in the form of a poster. A limited number of travel bursaries are available for postgraduate students or early career scientists.

If you would like to present a poster or be considered for a travel grant, please complete this application form instead of regular registration.

Poster submissions and travel bursaries close Friday 1 December 2017.

Assisted Places

A limited number of assisted places are available for members of the public affected by mental illness. These include free registration and reimbursement of reasonable travel expenses. If you are interested in applying, please contact MQ via email. Successful applicants will be drawn from a ballot, and notified by email.
