Remaining Critical about Mental Health Matters in Pandemic Crises 

12th Annual Critical Perspectives in Mental Health Conference

10th November 2020

Background

There has been no shortage of mental health advice and guidance from statutory services, voluntary organisations, and ‘mental health experts’ since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic earlier this year. We have seen headlines such as ‘tsunami of mental illness’ and references to opportunities to move towards more digitalised mental health services.

The conference will critically consider the range of recent responses to mental health matters arising from the pandemic and will explore ways of developing networks of support and solidarity in these uncertain times.
