G2C::Public Engagement

Science communication as a means of educating the public about our research findings, and engaging them in debate on subjects of widespread topical interest, particularly around the population's mental health and brain disease is recognised as an important part of scientific advancement by both governments and funding bodies.

Here we collect the resources G2C and collaborators have created for our public scientific engagement, and also the news reports of our research studies in the World Press.
