Annual MHPN Conference 2022:
'Current Health Psychology Priorities'

The Midlands Health Psychology Network (MHPN) is currently accepting submissions to their 17th Annual Conference, to be held ONLINE on Thursday, June 9th, 2022.


Our conferences are well attended by researchers, academics and students from the Midlands and beyond, and we host a day of oral presentations, poster presentations and showcases of intervention or practice.

We are hoping to attract contributions on the following research areas:

  • Early years research

  • Eating behaviours (e.g. obesity, restrictive eating, nutrition, weight management interventions)

  • Exercise and fitness

  • Health harms (e.g. alcohol use, drug use, smoking)

  • Managing long term health conditions (e.g. living with a chronic condition, pain management, adherence behaviours)

  • Public health reforms

  • Reducing health inequalities (e.g. deprivation, vulnerable groups, ethnicity, gender)

  • Sexual reproductive health

  • Other

Oral presentation:

Traditional 20-minute slot to talk about your research, suitable for students/researchers who have completed a piece of research and can present findings and impact.

Digital poster presentation:

To be displayed on a virtual platform. Digital posters should summarise the key features of your research–you will NOT need to prepare a presentation. We will also accept ‘work in progress’ in the form of a poster.

Once you have decided which option is best suited to your submission, please refer to the below abstract submission guidelines and submit your contribution BY MAY 11th 2022 to:
