This Month at The Dragon Café – Hysteria – Contested, Popularised, Diagnosed.

Being BAME: From colonial hysteria to the post-colonial experiences of mental health service – this Monday 12 – 8.30 pm at The Dragon Café.
This March join us for Hysteria – Contested, Popularised, Diagnosed, a series of openhearted RE:CREATE Psychiatry discussions in collaboration with research, curating and public engagement group PS/Y. This week’s opening event is an exploration of colonial hysteria and post-colonial experiences in Being BAME.

Following a screening of Larry Achiampong’s Relic 1, a film that invites us on a journey of moments – of constructed and yet familiar feelings of otherness – we will collectively unpick notions of colonial hysteria to ask how should we examine post-colonial identity and minority overrepresentation? What is it like being BAME (Black, Asian, and minority ethnic) in mental health services today?

All mental health professionals and those with lived experience welcome.
