In St Peter’s Methodist Church Hall at 7.30pm on Thursday 15th November.
What are the health issues which face our students and other young people in the city? This is the subject of a talk to be given on Thursday 15 November by local GP Dr Timothy Noble.
The talk will explore some of the reasons for concern – and some possible responses. Are mental health problems to do with family and childhood experiences or with fundamental social and psychological problems? What are the ‘trigger factors’ in Canterbury that lead to loneliness and depression? Are there sufficient counselling services available and what can we do to improve the mental health and happiness of the 15 per cent of those estimated to be in need? This is particularly pressing community issue for Canterbury with its high population of young people.
Dr Timothy Noble is the senior partner of a local medical practice and confronts these issues on a daily basis. He has been practicing in Canterbury for the past 24 years and in his talk, he will share with us his experience of the most challenging issues and how these can be better tackled in our City.
The talk, organised by the Canterbury Society, will take place on Thursday 15 November at 7.30 at St Peter’s Methodist Church Hall, St Peter’s St., Canterbury. Admission is free and open to all members of the public.
