Event description

Description

Registrations are now open for our next Mental Health Science Meeting – which takes place in London on 2-3 February 2017.

Our Mental Health Science Meeting is one of the largest international scientific event of its kind dedicated solely to mental health research.

Now in its 3rd year, the meeting brings together researchers from across disciplines to explore cutting-edge new ways to understand, treat and prevent mental illness.

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

The theme for this year’s meeting is the emergence of mental illness. This follows the launch of MQ’s major new young people’s mental health research programme.

Who is it for?

  • Scientists and experts from all disciplines who have an interest in mental health. We welcome scientists at all stages of their career.
  • Other mental health stakeholders including clinicians, service users, mental health funders and charity representatives.

Speakers include:

  • Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg (Central Institute of Mental Health, Mannheim) - Keynote
  • Carmen Sandi (Brain Mind Institute, EPF Lausanne) - Keynote
  • Susanne Ahmari (University of Pittsburgh)
  • Hugo Critchley (Brighton & Sussex Medical School)
  • Jonathan Mill (Exeter University / King’s College London)
  • Michelle Moulds (University of New South Wales)
  • Edmund Sonuga-Barke (University of Southampton)
  • Ezra Susser (Columbia University)
  • Simon Wessely (King's College London)

Places are limited and offered on a first come first served basis. A small number of travel bursaries are available for PhD students and early career scientists.

Registration

Registration cost of £50 includes refreshments, lunch, drinks and nibbles during the poster session. Places are limited and offered on a first come first served basis.

Registration closes 23 January 2017.

Those applying for a travel grant (see below) should wait to hear the outcome before completing registration, as the registration fees will be waived for successful travel bursary applicants.

Poster Submission

We particularly encourage student and early-career researchers to present a piece of recent work in the form of a poster. If you would like to attend and submit a poster abstract, please submit your abstract here.

Poster submissions closes 4 January 2017.

Travel Bursaries

We are aware that some postgraduate students or early career scientists may not have the financial means to attend this conference. A small number of travel bursaries are available to provide some individuals with the means to attend our Mental Health Science Meeting. Awards will be based on the needs and possible contributions of applicants. All recipients of these travel awards are expected to present their research within a scientific poster. Applications for travel bursaries can be found here.

Applications close 16 December 2016.

Assisted Places

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

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at events@mqmentalhealth.org.


We look forward to seeing you in February!
