Social Power and Mental Health Conference at Cambridge University
Student doctor Ivan Beckley talks about the systemic bias in healthcare that he's witnessed during his education.
After an intriguing start, we welcome Professor Frank Keating, a Professor of Social Work and Mental Health in the Department of Social Work at Royal Holloway University of London, and Rianna Walcott, a LAHP-funded PhD candidate at Kings College London and co-editor of an anthology about BAME mental health, The Colour of Madness. We also welcome Jacob Diggle, Head of Strategy & Insight from the charity Mind to provide a response from their organisation to what is said.
We asked a cross-section of our collaborators and community: What does it mean to be human, now? In these short films 11 contributors respond to the question, generously sharing their personal experiences of life and work during the Covid-19 pandemic.
WhatsApp chat groups are fertile soil for misinformation to spread among older adults, which is particularly damaging during a pandemic. Rianna Walcott finds out how best to counter fearmongering advice.
