Convenor: Erminia Colucci (University of Middlesex)
Short abstract: While potentially further exacerbated by the COVID19 pandemic, globally in the last decades we have witnessed an increase in mental disorders and suicidal behaviours. People experiencing mental illnesses are often subjected to various human rights abuses paired with often unavailable or inadequate care. During this panel, the presenters will share the findings and footage from their current ESRC/GCRF-funded project “Together for Mental Health: Using collaborative visual research methods to understand experiences of mental illness, coercion and restraint in Ghana and Indonesia”.
