The Frontiers in Mental Health Symposium (FMHS) 2018 is jointly organised by the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) and the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (LKCMedicine). The theme of the symposium is “Advancing Research in Depression and Psychosis”.

The symposium seeks to bring together leading researchers, neuroscientists, clinicians and academics with a keen interest in research updates on depression and psychosis, and the biological causes for these conditions.

Sir Philip Campbell, Editor-in-Chief of Nature and of Nature Research, will be the symposium's keynote speaker. He is also chair of the trustees of the research-funding charity MQ: transforming mental health.  Sir Campbell was a founding trustee of the charity when it was launched in 2013. Since then, he has ensured that the Nature journals pay due attention to mental health. In his MQ role, he has engaged with many mental health researchers and funders.

Overseas speakers from Sweden’s Karolinska University Hospital, National Centre for Mental Health (South Korea), National Centre of Neurology and Psychiatry (Japan) as well as speakers from IMH and LKCMedicine will also share recent findings from mental health research and discuss the implications of those studies on the practice of mental healthcare.

Admission is free by registration only. Limited seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
