Date(s) - 16/06/2021
8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


One in four people experiences a mental health problem each year, with depression and anxiety alone afflicting over 500 million people. Why are these conditions so widespread? What is it about modern life that has such an impact on our mental health? And why is there still so much confusion and stigma around these issues?

Drawing on nearly 20 years of working in the areas of neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry, Dean Burnett, author of Psycho-Logical and the international bestseller Idiot Brain, explores why these problems arise and what we can do to tackle them.

 This event is hosted live on Zoom Webinar. You’ll receive a link to join a couple of days before the event takes place and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
