Social Power and Mental Health: Evolving research through lived experience – Call for papers

25 March 2020 – 26 March 2020; SG1/2, CRASSH, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DT

Disempowered social groups are at an increased risk of mental health issues. They are more likely to face difficult economic, social and environmental conditions. Gender, ethnicity, sexuality, disabilities and social class intersect with these. What are the latest research findings on these topics? How do they compare with lived experiences? When might research worsen mental health challenges? What kinds of methods can produce empowerment?

This conference seeks to create dialogue between two forms of expertise. It will bring together people with lived experience of mental health challenges and researchers, with the aim of starting conversations between these two groups of experts, while recognising that many people belong in both groups

Call for Papers

If you would like to give a presentation of up to 15 minutes at the conference, please write a 250-word abstract (title and description of your presentation), and send it to emk31@cam.ac.uk. There is no requirement to disclose your personal experiences, although you’re very welcome to discuss them if you wish.

Alternatively, you can submit a poster, or suggest another type of presentation e.g. a film, an audio recording etc.

Closing date for submissions: Tuesday 10 December 2019
