A Reassuring Look at Mental Health
Dean Burnett & Robin Dunbar chaired by Russel McLean



6pm – 7pm BST*

One in four of us experience a mental health problem each year, with anxiety and depression alone affecting over 500 million people worldwide. In Psycho-Logical, neuroscientist and bestselling author Dean Burnett combines illuminating scientific research with first-hand insights from people who deal with mental health problems on a daily basis, to deliver an honest, entertaining and reassuring account of how and why these issues occur, and how to make sense of them. Robin Dunbar is the world-renowned psychologist and author who famously discovered Dunbar's number: how our capacity for friendship is limited to around 150 people. In Friends, he looks at friendship in the round, at the way different types of friendship and family relationships intersect, or at the complex of psychological and behavioural mechanisms that underpin friendships and make them possible - and just how complicated the business of making and keeping friends actually is.
