Mental Health Matters: The unhealthy mix between alcohol and mental health

Our “Mental Health Matters” programme is the Trust’s series of informal quarterly meetings for Trust members – principally service users and staff – to discuss issues relating to mental health. Previous topics covered have included race and inequality of access to care, labelling and stigma in mental health, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, quitting smoking, future mental health policy and art therapy.

With January being the seasonal time to cut back on alcohol, we explore its relationship with mental health. How does drinking impact on an individual’s mental health? Is there a predisposition amongst some people with mental health issues to abuse alcohol, and can drinking too much lead to mental health problems?

Do join us for the next in our series of “Mental Health Matters” events, in which we will examine a complex issue with a clinical perspective on the current thinking on the inter-relationship between alcohol, depression and psychiatric conditions, and the experiences of a service user.

The event will be chaired by Trust Medical Director, Dr Vincent Kirchner, and we are delighted to be joined by Dr Quentin Huys, Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at C&I and Clinical Senior Lecturer at UCL Psychiatry.
