The Centre’s response to Covid-19 and the impact on our wellbeing
Our brand new podcast exploring how social changes affect mental health
16 June 2021
We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Nila. They were an activist who campaigned tirelessly for mental health service users, especially in relation to race and equality in all spheres of life. As a member of the Centre for Society and Mental Health Lived Experience Advisory Board, they made an important contribution to the Centre. Their input and advice will be sadly missed.
They were a key voice campaigning on issues of power inequalities, structural racism, welfare reform and issues affecting LGBTQ+ communities. We would like to pay tribute to the work they did.
