GCU mental health scientist gives Food for Thought

Mental health researcher Ben Parkinson will lead the first online Food For Thought: Mindfulness and Stroke event on Wednesday, 22 July.

The event organised by GCU Community and Public Engagement in partnership between Queens Cross Housing Association will take place from 6.30-8.30pm.

Ben, a nursing lecturer in GCU’s School of Health and Life Sciences, will be talking about how mindfulness-based stress reduction is helping ease anxiety and depression after stroke.

The audience will get the chance to sample some mindfulness techniques and hear about the changes being recommended as a result of GCU research to allow more stroke survivors to benefit from mindfulness practices.

GCU staff, students, Queens Cross Housing Association tenants and members of the community are welcome to attend.

Ben’s research interests include adult mental health, mindfulness, psychological therapies, nurse education, systematic reviews, writing for publication, research ethics, and mixed methods research.
