Why tackling discrimination is crucial for addressing inequities in mental health and mental health servicesBook tickets
Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
This talk will examine how discrimination experienced by both patients and healthcare practitioners may generate inequalities and perpetuate inequities in mental health and mental health services for young people and their families. It will focus on understanding how differential and unfair treatment based on social identities and statuses create barriers between service users, practitioners and mental healthcare systems. Moreover, the talk will explore how research can be translational in going beyond identifying inequalities to focusing on tackling underlying mechanisms and developing risk mitigation strategies for service users, carer and families, as well as health and social care workers.
BSL interpretation will be available for those joining the seminar on a PC or laptop.
