Our Mental Wellness: Bullying and Anxiety

Positive social relationships are a key building block for our physical and mental well-being. Unfortunately, many of us will experience difficulties in our peer relationships, including peer victimisation. Peer victimisation makes us susceptible to anxiety and depression, and conversely anxiety and depression make us more vulnerable to being victimised. Join Cathy Creswell and Eleanor Leigh with panellists Lucy Bowes and Robert Hepach on Thursday 3 June, 10–10:45am (via Zoom) as they focus on understanding the thinking and behaviour traps that underlie this association and how to break it.

About the series

We have come to realise the importance of mental health issues and the impact they can have on individuals as well as on society at large. But, can you separate the facts from the myths? Do you know how to promote your own mental wellness and help those around you?

At Oxford, we have some of the world’s leading researchers helping us understand the causes of mental conditions and develop effective evidence-based treatments. We are bringing them together in a new series – Our Mental Wellness – to share their knowledge and answer your questions about how we can look after each other’s mental wellness in our community.
