Event description

Description

This ARC Centre of Excellence in the History of Emotions and Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender workshop is on the theme of emotions and mental health. Doctors of madness, insanity, and now mental health have long used the experience and expression of emotion as a gauge to psychological robustness. Our embodied experience of emotion is often critical to our own perception of wellbeing. Madness and mental illness are also emotive topics, being mobilised to encourage support and service provision, or to exclude those whose behaviour situates them beyond the ‘norm’. This symposium explores the relationship between emotion and mental health from an array of perspectives. All welcome.
