head talks events
The stigma of mental illness is still with us. The advance of technology and the increasingly fast pace of life makes honest communication about mental wellbeing even more important. And the young seem especially at risk.
The first Head Talks event debated and examined the state of mental wellbeing in today’s world.
Chief Correspondent of Radio 4’s Today Programme, Matthew Price, hosted a panel that included British adventurer Sarah Outen MBE and former Times journalist Rachel Kelly, best-selling author of Black Rainbow, which tells of her journey with mental illness.
We were also joined by Rt Hon Norman Lamb, Minister of State for Care and Support from 2012-15, and psychology lecturer, author and broadcaster, Claudia Hammond who shared their views on the vast amount of work that remains to be done on understanding and treating mental illness.
It was an informative and inspiring evening of talks and discussion at wonderful The Arts Club in London’s Mayfair.
