This year’s Monica Fooks Memorial Lecture welcomes Professor Kamaldeep Bhui CBE to Somerville for his lecture “Racism and Mental Health: researching mechanisms, preventive practice and policy”.

Professor Bhui is Professor of Psychiatry, University of Oxford and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist at East London NHS FT and Oxford Health NHS FT. He currently leads the CHIMES Collaborative at the University of Oxford, integrating creative arts, social sciences, psychiatric, and lived experience perspectives in mental health care and research. In his research, he is investigating the role of adverse childhood experiences in mental health trajectories, experience-based methods to co-design interventions to reduce the use of the mental health act, and the complex systems and syndemic drivers of multiple morbidities in psychoses. 

He trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, working in medical psychotherapy as well as adult psychiatry in the NHS. He has a long-standing interest in preventing health ethnic inequalities in the experience and outcome of mental illnesses, improving health services, public health interventions, and appropriate health policy.
