King's College London's first ever Regius Chair and the world's first Regius Chair in Psychiatry, Professor Sir Simon Wessely, is diverting from tradition for his inaugural 'lecture'.
Sir Simon will outline the background to the Chair and the state of play in psychiatry and mental health, followed by a reflection on the recent rise in mental disorders in younger people, which he says is "perhaps the first true risk in psychiatric disorders in this country in several generations".
Following this an expert panel will discuss these themes with the audience.
