    The Royal Institution: Why Mental Health Goes Wrong and How to Make Sense of It (Dean Burnett)


    What is it about modern life that has such an impact on our mental health? And what is actually going on in our brains when we suffer mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and addiction?

    Dean Burnett looks at how the modern world leads to so many mental health issues, the methods and complications around recognising and treating them, how our understanding has changed over the decades, and much more.

    Dr Dean Burnett, neuroscientist, lecturer, author, blogger, podcaster, pundit, science communicator, comedian and numerous other things, depending on who’s asking and what they need.

    Previously employed as a psychiatry tutor and lecturer at the Cardiff University Centre for Medical Education, Dean is currently an honorary research associate at Cardiff Psychology School, as well as a Visiting Industry Fellow at Birmingham City University.

    However, Dean is currently a full-time author, previously known for his satirical science column ‘Brain Flapping‘ at the Guardian, now Brain Yapping for Cosmic Shambles Network.

    Dean's book Psycho-logical is available now:

    I looked up the podcast. This looks very interesting. Especially considering how much we have going on here in my country regarding mental issues.
