2018 Conference on Transdiagnostic Approaches to Mental Health Challenges
17-18 September 2018
The meeting brought together clinicians and researchers interested in a transdiagnostic approach to understanding, classifying and treating mental health challenges.
In particular, we aimed to address the challenge of translating the basic transdiagnostic science and classification of mental health into clinical assessment and intervention.
The Conference was held at the Medical Research Council Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, University of Cambridge, followed by a dinner at Downing College on the evening of the 17th of September.
The conference included a single stream of Keynotes, open paper slots, rapid talks and a poster session.
