Study Centre hosts first lecture on mental health

The Subramanium Study Centre’s inaugural mental health lecture was held last week at the Prince of Wales International Centre for SANE Research (POWIC).

The Study Centre’s new not-for-profit Lecture Series brings together many of the country’s leading figures in mental health to discuss the current challenges, trends, and research breakthroughs in the field.

The centre principally seeks to advance the understanding of mental health and support the discovery of new treatments for mental health conditions.

POWIC Conference

Founded and launched by Gopal Subramanium, former Solicitor General of India, in September 2020, a key focus of The Subramanium Study Centre’s work at POWIC is to provide a better framework for understanding the interconnection between mental health, physical health, and other health conditions.

By supporting, funding, and undertaking multidisciplinary research, it seeks to identify the commonalities in themes and causes between a range of mental health conditions.
