Kick off meeting – Bristol

 Tuesday 10th December 10.15am– 1pm

The Emerging Minds Network would like to invite you to a meeting at the School of Psychological Science in Bristol hosted by Professor Marcus Munafò of the University of Bristol and Professor Sarah Halligan of the University of Bath.

Emerging Minds is a mental health research network funded by UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) with the aim of encouraging research across sectors and disciplines. We want to reduce the prevalence of mental health problems amongst children and young people through mental health promotion, prevention and early treatment.

The Emerging Minds network has a fund of £500,000 to share to enable research collaborations. We have prioritised 4 research challenges from the questions that young people, families, practitioners and policy makers have told us are most important and pressing. The purpose of the meeting and workshops is to kick start the next stage of the project.

The objectives of the event are:

  • To share more details about the Emerging Minds funding calls to be launched in autumn 2019.

  • To showcase inspiring examples of relevant research

  • To facilitate discussions around possible collaborations to address the Emerging Minds research challenges.

  • We will also be highlighting the opportunities offered by the other UKRI funded mental health research networks. 

Festive refreshments are included and you can register for your free place on Eventbrite.
