 A recording is now available for this 15 February workshop with SRN director, Sonia Thompson: Race, Racism, and Mental Health: Messages from the Racialised Others

“Critical Voices Network Ireland (CVNI) is pleased to announce a seminar/workshop, organised in partnership with the Institute for Social Science in the 21st Century (ISS21), University College Cork (UCC), Ireland, the Survivor Researcher Network (SRN), UK, and Asylum Magazine, UK. CVNI are pleased to be working again with the Onlinevents team, who will provide the online platform and support.

This seminar/workshop is the first of four seminars/workshops on critical mental health matters to be presented over the next few months with further details to follow as soon as these are ready to share.

This first seminar is a conversation about racism in mental health. While part of the seminar is informed by UK figures and policies, the broader discussion is of universal relevance. With Ireland leading the EU with some of the worst rates of hate-motivated harassment (INAR’s 2019 Reports of Racism in Ireland), it is an important opportunity to consider how processes of othering and racial discrimination affect experiences of distress.”

Recording and slides available here.
