Mental health research: a cross-faculty network event
Thursday 22 April 2021, 10:30 - 12:00, MS Teams
This session will bring together colleagues working in the field of mental health and wellbeing research across all three faculties and is for anyone working in these fields who wishes to be better connected with other researchers in adjacent fields and more able to plan for interdisciplinary approaches to mental health research.
Mental health and wellbeing research takes place across all three of the University of Warwick’s faculties, but it is often hard to connect with and keep track of new research initiatives and expertise beyond our own disciplines.
The purpose of this meeting is to:
Raise awareness about research with a mental health and wellbeing focus all around the university.
Find synergies of interest and shared or compatible research methodologies which could lead to joint bidding on interdisciplinary research projects.
Put us in the best position to respond at speed to future funding opportunities by building our research networks now.
As well as acting as a series of introductions to mental health research around the university the session will particularly focus on:
The relationship between clinical knowledge and practice and the medical humanities.
How the medical humanities can contextualise, interrogate, analyse, and explain medical knowledge and practices.
The role of interdisciplinary research methods and approaches in policy making around mental health and wellbeing.
How an engagement with the arts and culture can play a role in mental health and wellbeing.
What successfully interdisciplinary research into mental health and wellbeing might look like.
