On 19th March 2015 MARATONE fellows and the Consortium met for the second time to discuss the programme progress. The conference started with a talk from Prof Martin Prince, King’s College London, on a subject of achievements and challenges of global mental health. We were honoured to also have Dr Andrew Szeto, from University of Calgary who talked about targeting stigma in work place settings.
However, the main purpose of the conference was for our ESRs, who are now in the second year of their fellowship, to present the work they carry out and secondments and training they complete. Posters illustrating their work can be found below. You can find a full agenda from the conference here.
