Mental Health & Society research group

Our research group investigates the socio-political conditions of mental health in diverse settings. We ask how social conditions shape the lived experience, knowledge and policy, and the care for mental health problems in context. We seek to better understand the historical, therapeutic, and locally salient configurations of mental life in order to identify appropriate responses. The following areas are of particular interest to our group: the lived experience of distress and adversity, urban mental health, neuroscience and society, global mental health, mental health in conflict and war, ecosocial perspectives, culture and mental health, and mental health policy change.
