UK-SA Workshop on mental health

The UK-South Africa Workshop on Mental Health took place 17-19 October 2017 in Cape Town. The primary objective of the workshop was to provide UK and South African researchers the opportunity to discuss ideas for research collaborations through discussions and networking. 

The event comprised of presentations from the funders, Medical Research Council (MRC), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC), and both UK and South African researchers were given the opportunity to present their Research Organisation and their interests.
