Wellness: Online Seminar

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. ‎
