The inaugural Mind Matters Initiative (MMI) Research Symposium will take place on Friday, 20 January 2017, at the University of Edinburgh’s Pollock Halls, under the theme ‘Understanding and supporting veterinary mental health’.
The event will bring together those involved in research into mental health and wellbeing in the veterinary profession in order to share latest findings and consider what interventions may be developed from this knowledge. There will also be the opportunity to identify the gaps in the current research jigsaw.
Keynote speakers will include Professor Rory O’Connor of the Suicide Behaviour Research Lab at the University of Glasgow, Dr Debbie Cohen, Chair of the Faculty of Occupational Health at Cardiff University, and Chris O’Sullivan of the Mental Health Foundation.
The event will be preceded, on the evening of Thursday 19 January 2017, by an optional informal dinner at St Leonard’s Hall, for a chance to network with colleagues and start the discussion.
Tickets for the Symposium cost £30 (or £54 including dinner on 19 January), and are available at www.rcvsmindmatters.eventbrite.com
