Leading academics share views on Brexit’s impact on Mental Health

UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 05 JUNE

Two leading Birmingham City University lecturers have shared their thoughts on how, and if, Brexit and the current state of British politics is impacting the public’s mental health and well-being.

Dr Rebecca Semmens-Wheeler, Lecturer in Psychology, and Kim Moore, Senior Lecturer in the School of Nursing, came together for the Centre for Brexit Studies podcast.

The two academics discussed the impact that Brexit, and the current state of British politics, is having on the public's mental health and how we can cope with the country's uncertainty on our health and well-being.

They also discussed the Tory leadership contest and how this could impact people’s anxieties surrounding Brexit and the future of the UK, as well as an NHS trade deal with the US, President Trump’s state visit and exercises we can do on a daily basis to cope with mental health issues.
