Money on the Mind: How socioeconomic conditions affect our mental health

Talk/Webinar, Panel debate, Workshop

About this event

Public discussion around mental health is often focused on raising awareness of particular diagnoses, reducing stigma and availability of treatments. There is now a large body of research, however, to suggest that social and structural factors such as housing, social security and income are implicated in mental health and illness, as well as in experiences of stigma, but these issues are often neglected in public debates. This event will aim to showcase research on the social determinants of mental illness and stigma, contextualised by socioeconomic changes brought about by the pandemic and related impacts on mental health. It will bring together academics and people with lived experience of mental illness, alongside health and social policy makers and practitioners, to generate discussion and debate around these topics.
