The group

We are a  group of clinicians that are passionate about closing the gap between mental and physicial health through research and education.


Mental and physical health are deeply interlinked.

Physical illness can lead to mental health problems and vice-versa.


We talk weather, we talk headaches, we talk sport, we talk cramps. We ask patients about rashes and periods. Why don't we talk about mental health?!


Mental health problems are common within the medical profession, including depression, anxiety, alcohol or drug addiction and burnout.
