Join us for the first in a series of discussions as part of the Social Power and Mental Health: Evolving Research Through Lived Experience conference
This online panel will explore how mental health survivors/service users have been responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’ll hear about survivor-led mutual aid projects, and reflect on their links to a long history of survivor/service user activism.
And we’ll consider how current mutual aid efforts are rooted in the self-help movements developed by black working-class communities in the 1960s and 1970s.
