Brexit and mental health: how are you coping?

Friday, 4th October 2019, London

Brexit is the biggest upheaval many of us will have known in our lifetimes. It has dominated the political scene for over three years and all of us will be affected by it in some way. 

The European Parliament put citizens' rights at the core of its demands for signing off any Withdrawal Agreement and to mark World Mental Health Day, its Liaison Office in London staged an event to look at the psychological impact the UK's departure is having on both Britons and EU27 nationals resident here. 

It's good to talk.
