Conference hosted by the Refugee Mental Health and Place network in collaboration with the ESRC Centre for Society and Mental Health and the Department of Population Health Sciences at King’s College London.
This conference will bring together scholars, activists, artists, policy makers and people with lived experience to explore and examine what it means to be a refugee in a particular place and how this can be relevant to mental health. We imagine place as a complex domain that can include risk factors such as neighbourhood violence, poor housing conditions and social isolation or protective and resilience factors such as community ties, gainful employment and therapeutic potential of green and recreational spaces. We will seek to understand how social, material, cultural, environmental, political and institutional dimensions and characteristics of places constitute and affect refugee mental health in a post-migration context.
