our sick society

Our Sick Society is a podcast series where researchers from King’s College London and people with lived experience explore together how social factors contribute to mental health problems. The podcast encourages listeners to think and question society’s role in mental health - what are the systems and the structures which mean that some people are more likely to become mentally unwell than others? And crucially, what steps should society take, from national government policies, to local grassroots community organising? How can we cure our sick society?


Each episode, we hear from individuals in marginalised communities who have experienced mental ill health, giving them the opportunity to describe how specific social aspects have impacted their life and experiences. Topics include the impact of Covid-19 control measures on mental health; navigating complex work, welfare and housing systems in place across the UK; and experiences of refugees seeking mental health support.
