Mental Health in the Differently-Abled

February 10, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Interested in mental health in marginalized communities? Want to know more about mental health in the differently-abled? If your answer is yes, then this is the talk for you! This event is open to all – so feel free to attend even if you are not a medical student/are a medical student elsewhere!

We are proud to announce our engaging and vivid speakers: Anannya Chatterjee and Dr Kirsty Dunn…

Anannya is a Loughborough and University of Law graduate currently working at the University of Nottingham and lives with cerebral palsy. Having worked in mental health settings, Anannya is no stranger to the world of mental health but was not prepared for how her cerebral palsy would impact her own mental health This whistle-stop talk will hopefully show that those of us living with disabilities are people first, and diagnosis second.

Dr. Kirsty Dunn is a Research Associate at the Scottish Learning Disabilities Observatory, based at the University of Glasgow. Her projects in this role have centered around the health and health inequalities experienced by people with intellectual disabilities. Dr. Dunn graduated from the University of Glasgow with an MA (Soc Sci) in Psychology before going on to complete an MSc in Social and Organisational Psychology at the University of Exeter, and a PhD in Psychological Medicine at the University of Glasgow
