Café Scientifique: The New Psychiatrists' Bible
Dr Rachel Cooper, Lancaster University

The Robert Gillow, Lancaster
Five million people could be mislabelled with an inappropriate diagnosis of mental disorder due to a new classification of mental disorders, says a recent British Medical Journal article, with women more likely to be affected because they are more likely to be casually dismissed as "catastrophizers".
With one in four people experiencing a mental health problem in any given year, this affects us all.
Find out more about this new classification of mental disorders (the DSM-5) when Dr Rachel Cooper, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Lancaster University, talks to Lancaster's Café Scientifique about 'The New Psychiatrists' Bible'.
Café Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. It is an informal non-academic event and everyone is welcome.
A new group for Lancaster has been formed, and the talks to date have been well-attended with lots of discussion. They host a Café on the first Wednesday of each month at the Robert Gillow Pub in Lancaster.
