December 8th 2017 Conference
The Royal College of Psychiatrists presents this year’s Women and Mental Health Conference – “Let’s Talk About Sex”. The conference focuses on sex and sexuality in mental health in particular the impact of societal notions of female sexuality on mental health.
This year’s conference is uncompromising in its examination of the role of societal expectations of female sexuality in the development of mental health problems in women. To this end there will be discussion of the prevalence of mental health problems in women; the relationship of these to sexual abuse and exploitation; the role of pornography and the exponential growth of cosmetic surgical procedures in women.
Speakers include: Kathryn Abel, Heather Brunskell-Evans, Elana Covshoff, Shubulade Smith, and Andre Tomlin
