Global Mental Health and Decolonization
June 9, 2021 N/A
About this event
This seminar will examine how the universality of mental health has been constructed and negotiated, within the World Health Organisation and in the Movement for Global Mental Health. The speakers will consider how Global Mental Health stories its own history - frequently overlooking that psychiatric classification has long been global, especially in its quest for international comparison of 'mental illness'; and how it engages with critiques of its coloniality - often by framing colonialism as racist denial of care located in the past, rather than something that wraps around the present.
