Advance notice - RCOMH International research symposium 2011
The Research Centre for Occupation & Mental Health is hosting an International research symposium in Eastbourne, UK on the 27th and 28th June 2011. Its aims are to develop international research bids related to occupation and mental health and a consensus statement about multi centre studies. This prestigious event will be facilitated by Professor Karen Kirkby, University of Surrey. Karen is a highly experienced research leader. She is a grant holder on research grants valued in excess of £20 million (from ESPRC, Wolfson Foundation and EU), has been an invited speaker at conferences around the world, and has published over 150 papers in refereed journals (including Nature). She is the ideal person to help researchers working in the field of occupation and mental health to build international research bids using the networks that have been developing through RCOMH.

The symposium will be open to researchers from around the world but numbers will be strictly limited to 18. Further details about how to apply for a place will be available early in 2011.
The symposium will be held just before the College of Occupational Therapists’ national conference in Brighton, which is in the same week. Linking the two events provides an ideal opportunity to participate in a unique symposium for researchers as well as attend the leading conference for occupational therapists in the UK.
