Partner Events
by Middlesex University Nursing Society

Need one more IPL Session? Want to watch some movies, eat snacks, get a certificate for it, and placement hours signed off for the time you spend doing it, ALL FOR FREE??? Middlesex University Nursing Society has got you covered!

Taking a look at mental health conditions through the lens of film, this event will offer students the opportunity to understand some of the most common conditions likely to be encountered in practice, with an expert panel guiding the audience through discussion about the portrayal of the condition, as well as the assessment process.

This fabulous event will be hosted at Middlesex University and sponsored by the Royal College of Nursing, to provide an exciting educational experience with a touch of the silver screen.

There will be two halves to the night with an intermission, the first half will be a lecture by Professor Carmel Clancy (Head of Mental Health Social Work & Integrated Medicine at MDX) on how to undertake a mini-mental state exam.

This will be followed by a short break where FREE SNACKS will be provided for all ticket holders before the main event.


The main event will be held in Lecture Theatre CG77, and consist of a series of short clips from movies depicting different mental health conditions. After each clip the expert panel will guide discussion of the clip, the condition, and implications for practice.

This event will be ideal for nursing students of all fields but also for all midwifery, teaching, social work, occupational therepy and other professionals, interested in having a better understanding of common mental health conditions, and how to undertake a basic assessment.
