'Maybe I Don’t Belong Here'

'Maybe I Don’t Belong Here' 20 OctoberOct 2022 20:00 - 21:00Online, (link below)

As a mental health ambassador who has been outspoken about his struggles with psychosis, David Harewood’s book is a harrowing and candid account of the racial trauma that led to the breakdown he suffered in his 20s.

He charts his journey from breakdown to recovery, and explores how systemic racism impacts on Black mental health, going behind some stark statistics: that Black Caribbean people have the highest rates of detention in psychiatric hospitals out of 16 specific ethnic groups; that Black people are four times more likely to be detained under the Mental Health Act than white people.

How do biases continue to shape perceptions of mental health? How can we address racial trauma? Join Harewood as he talks about his memoir and asks: has the environment that contributed to his psychosis really changed?
