Mind Your Head - online

Conference logoThe Mind Your Head conference was held at Wembley Conference Centre on 14 June 2006 as part of Men's Health Week. The theme of both the week and the conference was improving the mental well-being of men and boys.

The morning programme featured addresses from Dr Howard Stoate MP, the chair of the All-Party Group on Men's Health; Rosie Winterton MP, the minister of state for health services; Alan White, professor of men's health at Leeds Met University and chair of the MHF board of trustees; Kwame McKenzie, senior lecturer in psychiatry at the Royal Free and University College Medical School; and Mike Bush, associate lecturer in mental health at Leeds Met University and a user of mental health services.
