On Saturday 18 April 2020 at 7pm, RR hosted the 4th episode of virtual talks on its Facebook page. The Talk was about understanding "Wellness & Mental Health" Issues and it was delivered by Dr Mustafa Alachkar, a Consultant Psychiatrist at the NHS. In his presentation, Dr Alachkar talked about the conceptualisation and contextulisation of mental health and mental illness. He further discussed the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist but with a particular emphasis on the latter. Psychotherapy as a concept has been discussed in addition to the type of treatments that can be offered to those who suffer from mental health problems. The mental health system in England and how to refer potential and actual cases was also highlighted in the presentation. The presentation lasted for more than 1 hour and it was highly informative and interactive.
