This two-day symposium:

  • Examines the impact of poverty on mental health through the lives and experiences of people in disadvantaged communities.
  • Considers the different social factors that contribute to this experience and how the NHS responds to these needs.

  • Sets out new ways for GPs and primary care services to understand these issues and provide the most appropriate care.

Speakers include:

  • Paul Farmer (Chief executive, Mind)
  • Helen Stokes-Lampard (Chair, Royal College of General Practitioners)

  • Leading academics including Jessica Allen, Joanna Moncrieff, Jennie Popay, Stewart Mercer and Chris Dowrick
