Maudsley Debates

The Maudsley Debates take place three times a year at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN). Topics generally focus on issues that have a direct impact on mental health services, service users and mental health professionals.

The debates are open to all, and are attended by service users, carers, professionals, journalists and members of the public.

Speakers have included Germaine Greer, Lord David Owen, mental health tsar Louis Appleby, journalist Ben Goldacre and Baroness Mary Warnock.
