Event description

Description

The University of Leicester's Wellbeing Matters campaign and the Centre for Hate Studies come together to discuss hate crime and mental health.

Hate driven behaviour is typically expressed through acts of hostility and violence where victims are targeted specifically because of their identity characteristics or perceived ‘difference’.

Although the physical injuries associated with hate crime are relatively well documented, the emotional harms are often overlooked, under-estimated or ignored altogether.

This event brings together a panel of experts to discuss those harms and their damaging impacts upon mental health, and to explore ways in which we can collectively support victims’ needs more effectively.

Led by Professor Neil Chakraborti and colleagues from the Centre for Hate Studies the event is designed to offer authentic insights into the challenges associated with hate crime and mental health from a range of perspectives, and to invite members of the audience to share their own ideas for change.
