Culture and Wellbeing
Socio-economic issues and culture have an impact on our mental health and mental wellbeing. As countries become increasingly multicultural, it is even more important to share knowledge, experiences and different approaches used across the world to improve health and wellbeing.
We are keen to undertake international research, using the latest online tools and techniques available to inform the above knowledge exchange.
Careif also runs seminars, workshops and conferences. Some of these are in partnership with other bodies in order to explore how cultures are changing in the face of globalisation, and the impact of this on people’s mental health wellbeing. These events are designed to cover local, regional, national and international issues and topics.
