Event Details

During the mid-20th century Glasgow became a world leader in the fields of neurosurgery and psychiatry with some of the greatest minds working to change approaches to therapy and surgical techniques. This year our Goodall Symposium looks at the work of three of these great minds – R.D. Laing, Joseph Schorstein, and James Sloan Robertson.

This is a hybrid event and you are welcome to join us either in person or online. Tickets for both are limited so please book in advance. For those of you joining us online a link to attend the Teams Meeting will be sent to you on the day. If you're joining us in person, drinks and nibbles will be available from 6pm. The talks are scheduled to start at 6:30pm (BST).

All our events are free to attend but if you would like to make a contribution to our HOPE Foundation it would be gratefully received. 100% of donations to HOPE go directly towards health-related projects locally, nationally and internationally.
