Afflictions of Mind Reading Group

We are thrilled to launch a new reading group - 'Afflictions of Mind'. We will be reading and discussing topics in the philosophy of psychiatry, mental health, and ethics in medicine. The group is open to all undergraduates, postgraduates and staff, who are interested in the topics as well as who may have personal experiences.
