Mind-Reading 2017 was a one-day programme of talks and workshops at dlr Lexicon seeking to explore productive interactions between literature and mental health both historically and in the present day. Bringing together psychologists, psychiatrists, interdisciplinary professionals, GPs, service users, and historians of literature and medicine, the conference aimed to identify the roles that writing and narrative can play in medical education, patient and self-care, and/or professional development schemes.

Mind-Reading 2017 was organised by Dr. Elizabeth Barrett (UCD Child and Adolescent Psychiatry) and Dr. Melissa Dickson (University of Birmingham with the Diseases of Modern Life Project at St Anne’s College, Oxford).
