I just wanted to share about a great conference- Mind Over Matter, that took place at King’s College on 9th January 2016.. organised by amazing team form Neuroscience Society.
The conference consisted of morning and afternoon talks and workshops on the topics of Schizophrenia, Eating Disorders, Stress, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD), Depression and Art-Therapy: novel approaches to mental health therapies. A panel discussion will follow, on the topic ‘Treating Mental Disorders; past, present and future’. The panel discussion is titled: ‘Holistic vs pharmacological approaches: Are we treating persons as a whole or just receptors?’. The panel will debate about the role of traditional pharmacology in treating mental illnesses versus current newly-introduced approaches based on ‘The healing power of art’ and the power of the mind over the brain.
Congratulations on amazing event. I got a great opportunity to exhibit my ‘Progress not Perfection’ project that was raising awareness about addictions as well as inspiring people that change is possible. Here are some pictures from the day, I hope you enjoy!
