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.
Marjorie Wallace CBE, SANE Founder and Chief Executive, gave the welcome address at the event on Thursday April 14.
Invited guests heard from speakers Sean Fletcher, TV journalist and presenter of Countryfile and Good Morning Britain; Professor Wendy Burn CBE (pictured below), leading older age and dementia psychiatrist and former president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Professor Belinda Lennox, Head of the Department of Psychiatry at Oxford University, who joined a discussion panel.
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.
