With January being the seasonal time to cut back on alcohol, we explore its relationship with mental health. How does drinking impact on an individual’s mental health? Is there a predisposition amongst some people with mental health issues to abuse alcohol, and can drinking too much lead to mental health problems?
Do join us for the next in our series of “Mental Health Matters” events, entitled "The unhealthy mix between alcohol and mental health", in which we will examine a complex issue with a clinical perspective on the current thinking on the inter-relationship between alcohol, depression and psychiatric conditions, and the experiences of a service user.
The event will be chaired by Trust Medical Director, Dr Vincent Kirchner, and we are delighted to be joined by Dr Quentin Huys (pictured) , Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at C&I and Clinical Senior Lecturer at UCL Psychiatry.
Date: Wednesday 23 January 2019
Time: Doors open at 5:30pm; 6pm start. finishing at 7:30pm
Venue: St Pancras Conference Centre, 4 St Pancras Way, London NW1 0PE
We look forward to seeing as many of you at the event as possible. To confirm your place please email firstname.lastname@example.org
