The Scottish Mental Health Research Network are holding their ASM this year on Thursday 12th December. This will take place at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh. The interaction between the mind and body continues to be controversial in mental health, especially in the light of recent advances in genetics and imaging. Please join us for what promises to be a lively and stimulating programme. This event is open to anyone interested and involved in mental health research in Scotland. The event is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided. A draft programme will be available to view in due course.
