The Training School is specifically tailored for PhD and post-graduate students and early-career investigators (within 8 years of a Ph.D. award) working in Mental health and Mental Health related areas. The program will combine lectures from experts in the field with interactive sessions to encourage exchange of views and to facilitate networking among participants.
