Elaine will be in discussion with Ruby Wax at the Latitude Festival on 17th July on Nature, Nurture and Depression. It will be in the Wellcome Trust hub and organised by Salon London.
There are many routes to depression, but why do the same life experiences trigger depression in some people and not in others? The psychologist and author of Rainy Brain Sunny Brain Professor Elaine Fox is conducting cutting edge research into emotional resilience at Oxford University, and will be in conversation with comedian, author of Sane New World and mental health campaigner Ruby Wax to consider which factors contribute to our mental health. How much of our mental health do we inherit? How much is a reaction to the things that happen to us in life, and how much is under our control?
Ruby Wax and Prof Elaine Fox have some fascinating answers.
