Tuesday 23rd of February
The pandemic has had a profound impact on our mental health and emotional well-being. The relationships and social networks that we all depend on have been severely curtailed and changed. These changes have led to loneliness, depression and despair, to increased tensions in relationships, even violence, and a surge in suicide attempts. Health professionals have themselves been deeply affected by the pressures and anxieties they face but may be reluctant to seek help, thus worsening their mental health.
Dame Clare Gerada, GP in South London, Medical Director of the NHS Practitioner Health Programme and author of “Beneath the White Coat: Doctors, Their Minds and Mental Health”, will be in dialogue with the psychoanalyst Anne Patterson, consultant psychiatrist in psychotherapy. The event will be chaired by the psychoanalyst Anuradha Menon, consultant in medical psychotherapy and liaison psychiatry.
These dialogues will be held live on Zoom and will also be made available the following day for 24 hours to all registered participants. This is to allow for international attendees to enjoy the event at a more appropriate time in their time zone. After this, the recording will no longer be available.
REFUND POLICY: Tickets are fully refundable until 14 days before the event, after which time no refunds will be issued
