I had the honour and the pleasure of talking to Martin Seager for ICMI20 and a structured interview will be released during the event – but the conversation we shared before the structured interview began was so interesting that I thought it should be shared! Please enjoy.
Martin’s full conference talk title is “What is Gamma Bias Theory, and How Could it Help us Understand and Respond to Male Suicide?”
Martin is a consultant clinical psychologist and adult psychotherapist, most recently with the addictions charity, CGL (2016-2020). He is a clinician, lecturer, campaigner and author on mental health issues. He studied at Oxford University, Edinburgh University and the Tavistock Clinic.
He worked in the NHS for over 30 years and was head of psychological services in two large mental health Trusts. He had a regular mental health slot on BBC Essex radio from 2003-2007 and BBC Radio Five Live “Up All Night” from 2007-2009. In 2006 he formed a national mental health advisory group for the health secretary at the time, Patricia Hewitt.
