EVENTS DURING 2018

Seminars, an Open Forum and our Annual Memorial Lecture Series

We are pleased to announce that Professor Baroness Shelia Hollins

will be giving the annual Professor Peter Gilbert Memorial Lecture

on Wednesday 16th May 2018 from 2.00pm to 4.45pm at

St. Aloysius Church, 20 Phoenix Road, Kings Cross, London, NW1 1TA


As Mental Healthcare in general in the twenty first century is facing an epidemic crisis of demand there is a danger of those with learning disability being side-lined and their voices unheard. The importance of spirituality and finding meaning in life is equally important to consider with people who have a learning disability as with any others. Baroness Hollins has extensive experience in this field nationally and internationally. Do join us for what is certain to be a most informative and thought provoking lecture.


Professor Sheila the Baroness Hollins was a consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist from 1982 to 2006, working with children and adults with learning disabilities. She is now an independent crossbench life peer in the House of Lords, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry of Disability at St George's University of London, Honorary Professor in the Department of Theology and Religion, University of Durham, Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Centre for Child Protection, Baroness Hollins served as Chair of the World Health Organisation Euro Steering Group on the health and wellbeing of children with intellectual disabilities (2008), President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (2005-2008), President of the British Medical Association (2012-2013) and Chair of the Board of Science of the British Medical Association (2013- 2016). She is currently President of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists. She is married, with four children, one of whom has a learning disability, and four grandchildren and is a member of the Lay Community of St Benedict.
