Genetics & Mental Health: what do we know?

As part of Cardiff University School of Medicine’s Science in Health Public Lecture Series we are holding a free public talk to mark World Mental Health Day

Genetics & Mental Health: what do we know?  Dr Annie Procter, Consultant Geneticist & Director of the Mental Health Clinical Board, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board

Thursday 12th October 2017, 7pm, Large Chemistry Lecture Theatre, Cardiff University

The factors which influence mental health and wellbeing at any stage of life are many and varied.  These factors can interact in highly complex ways that can vary from day to day and can have a greater or lesser impact at different times during an individual’s lifetime.  As we learn more about our genome and how it functions, we are gaining greater insights into the influence of genetics on mental and physical health.  This lecture will explore some of the insights we have gained into the role genetics can play in mental wellbeing and the mental health challenges this can present to those affected and their families and carers.

FREE to attend, no booking required.
