by Psychologists for Social Change South Wales
Psychologists for Social Change South Wales detail the devastating impacts of austerity and inequality on the well-being of people in Wales, and introduce radical ways in which the causes of psychological distress can be addressed through new developments in mental health services and poverty policy.
In the context of underfunded and outdated mental health and local authority services we would like to explore the impact of poverty and inequality on the well-being of citizens in Wales – particularly children and young people. This will be followed by outlining examples of psychologically informed service developments which aim to address the wider causes of mental distress as well as the factors that maintain suffering.Sign in to read more
