ONLINE: Mutual Aid and Mental Health in Times of COVID

28 May 2020, 16:30 - 17:30


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.


Panellists include:

Bethan Mair Edwards (Mad Covid)

Akiko Hart (National Survivor User Network)

Sophia Siddiqui (Institute of Race Relations)

Helen Spandler (UCLan)
