An application-only early-career workshop on: ‘Mental Health Policy and Social Science Practice: Enhancing Engagement and Expertise’ will take place in Edinburgh City Centre on the 22nd March 2018. The keynote speaker will be Norman Lamb MP (former Care Minister and current Chair of the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology), with other speakers to be confirmed.

Lamb will be in attendance from ~13:30 until 17:00.  The workshop is open to 20 ECRs (i.e., PhD students and recent postdoctoral scholars), who are requested to bring posters about their work in order to facilitate speaker feedback.
