2nd: Study of forensic mental health
Of course, the purpose of staying London was to study about forensic mental health. I am not sure I have learned adequately. But, it is certain that I would have failed to learn many things if I had not visited here. I am thankful to the support of the staff of IoPPN.

I was surprised to know that a referendum could change the structure of a nation. And I was lucky to encounter this historic vote, with no direct risk of my daily life. This event made me consider the meaning of being a citizen.
