Global Health Histories Seminar 143: Mental Health and Inequalities

Friday 14 February 2020, 1.30PM

Speaker(s): Dr Antonis Kousoulis (Director, Mental Health Foundation, England and Wales); Dr Gerardo A Zavela Gomez (Research Fellow, Health Sciences, University of York); Natalie Creary (Director, Black Thrive, UK)

Mental ill-health has been misunderstood and mistreated for centuries. Despite recent progress in addressing stigma, developing treatments and resourcing services, the public health aspect of mental health has remained largely neglected. To achieve a step-change in addressing mental health problems we need to take a serious look into the persistent inequalities that cause them. Dr Antonis Kousoulis will be unveiling a new report on mental health inequalities and talking about a novel prevention strategy. The seminar will take a broad view on the historical and persistent limitations of our knowledge, and will discuss how this new public mental health focus can be implemented and what is known already on reducing inequalities and improving mental health.
