Join Micha Frazer-Carroll for this discussion of their debut book, 'Mad World: The Politics of Mental Health'.
Mental health affects us all, and yet it remains elusive as a concept. Does getting a diagnosis help or hinder? How is mental wellbeing, which is often incredibly personal, driven by widespread societal suffering? Can it be a social construct and real at the same time? These are some of the big questions Micha Frazer-Carroll explores in her Mad World talk.
Micha Frazer-Carroll is a columnist at the Independent. She has previously edited for gal-dem, the Guardian and Blueprint, a mental health magazine that she founded. Micha has also written for Vogue, HuffPost, Huck and Dazed. She was nominated for the Comment Awards’ Fresh New Voice of the Year Award, and the Observer/Anthony Burgess Award for Arts Criticism. She is invested in using journalism to challenge systems of power.
In this talk, Micha Frazer-Carroll discusses mental health as a political issue, and presents a radical and hopeful antidote to pathologisation, gatekeeping and the policing of imagination.
This event will contain a 45min talk, followed by an opportunity for audience questions. This event is a donation point for The Homeless Period.
