We are honoured to have Professor Sir Robin Murray deliver the Emanuel Miller Memorial lecture on the topic of adolescent drug use and its link to psychosis.

Set in the stunning location of the The Royal College of Physicians, in the heart of London, this one-day conference includes lectures and discussions on; adolescent drug use, depression, self-harm, and school-based intervention trial evidence.


Confirmed Speakers:
• Professor Sir Robin Murray
• Professor Ian Goodyer

• Professor Chris Bonell
Chris Bonell is Professor of Public Health Sociology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, having previously been Professor of Sociology and Social Policy at University College London and Professor of Sociology and Social Intervention at the University of Oxford. His areas of interest include: the evaluation of complex social interventions; the use of realist approaches alongside randomised controlled trials; the assessment of intervention harms; synthesising diverse forms of evidence and theory; young people’s health; and the effects of the school environment on health. He is working on a number of intervention studies in secondary schools in the UK and elsewhere including: co-directing a trial of the Learning Together intervention to prevent bullying and aggression; directing a pilot trial of the Positive Choices intervention to promote sexual health; and co-directing a pilot trial of the Project Respect intervention to prevent dating and relationship violence.

At the Emanuel Miller Memorial Lecture and Conference Chris will talk on ‘The effects of Learning Together, a whole-school intervention to prevent bullying and aggression in English secondary schools.’

Chris will present preliminary results of the Learning Together intervention both in terms of its impacts on bullying, substance use behaviours and mental health outcomes as well as its likely transferability given findings from the process evaluation.
