Improving health: It's more complicated than you think - great lecture by Sir Harry Burns

This is a brilliant lecture and well worth your time - it's all about what happens when innate physical and emotional needs are not met, in this case in Scotland. 

Why has the life expectancy in Scotland stayed so low in comparison to other countries and deprived areas? How can you raise children to survive adverse life conditions without compromising their mental and physical health? These questions and more are answered in this fascinating lecture which aligns perfectly with the human givens approach to mental health.
