WELCOME Hello everyone and welcome to the Institute of Psychiatry! I’m so pleased to see such a wide representation of universities at the event and I hope you enjoy the opportunity to meet students from different places, years and backgrounds. One of the things I love most about psychiatry is its diversity and I believe this is reflected in the wide variety of talks, workshops, socials and competitions which will take place over the weekend.  There’s something on offer for every taste; this includes talks and workshops on the most recent and innovative approaches to psychiatry, lively discussion about ethics, media and philosophy, as well as creative perspectives on music, magicians, maltesers and mindfulness.    This conference has been organised by students, for students, and we therefore hope that you find the weekend to be fun, friendly and down-to-earth. We’ll be providing you with many opportunities to chat with psychiatrists in informal settings, explore the different subspecialties, put across your own opinions and further your involvement in psychiatry at the student level. In the process, we hope that others will be inspired to host similar events in future years. If you have any questions or problems during the event just look for one of our PsychSoc representatives, in the blue tops, who would be more than happy to help you out. There will always be someone at the registration desk near the main entrance, or you can call us on 07581 506453. Finally, we are immensely grateful to all of our speakers and workshop hosts for their time and enthusiasm. We would also like to offer a huge thank you to the staff at the Institute of Psychiatry for their advice and support and a special thank you to our supervisor, Dr Charlotte Wilson-Jones, whose help has been invaluable.  We hope you have a really enjoyable weekend; do come and have a chat with us!
