Lived experience work: anti-racism & mental health (podcast)

Kadra Abdinasir and António Ferreira talk to Amy Wells from NSUN about lived experience work at the intersections of anti-racism and mental health.

Kadra (lead, Children & Young People’s Mental Health at Centre for Mental Health, and organiser, Charity So White) and António (mental health activist/speaker and student) discuss the dynamics of lived experience based ‘work’ in anti-racism and mental health from the challenges and barriers to what nurtures this kind of activity. They touch on the “hard to reach” narrative, the state of anti-racism work within the mental health charity sector, and the emotional toll of doing this kind of work and activism.
