Next London Event

The next Christians in Pharmacy meeting will be held at Christian Concern, 70 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 8AX on Saturday 20 October from 10.15am – 3.30pm. The theme for our meeting is ‘Developing resilience in our mental health’. The aim of our time together is to gain an insight into the state of the UK’s mental health, especially the more commonly reported mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. More than 4 in 10 people say they have experienced depression. All of us who work in the pharmaceutical world, whether as pharmacists, technicians, pharmaceutical scientists, researchers, students or lecturers, readily understand work-related stress which can lead to all sorts of mental health problems (for us and for our colleagues).
 
The programme for the day is below; please note that timings are flexible and depend on how many people attend etc:

We believe that this meeting is very important. Although there is no cost to attend the meeting we recognise that for some people the cost of getting to London may be a barrier to attending. This may be particularly true for students. Although as an organisation we do not have extensive funds available, we would like to help. We are making available three travel bursaries of up to £15 each. If you would like to take up one of these bursaries, please email the chair of the leadership team, Simon Lewis (simon@citycoast.church), with a brief explanation of why you need the funding and what you expect to be able to contribute to and get out of the day.
 
Please come along and share this invitation with other Christians who study or work in the pharmaceutical world so that together we can be more effective as an organisation. RSVP to simon@citycoast.church so that we have some idea how many people will be attending. However, there is no cost or deadline and you can just turn up on the day.
 
Looking forward to seeing you there,
 
The CiP Leadership Team
