Talking racism and mental health in schools

25 January 2022

Racism has a detrimental impact on the lives of young people, and when experienced, it affects both their mental health and potential to thrive.
The Anna Freud Centre has released a new podcast series. In the series, experts in mental health, education and anti-racism explore topics including representation, culture and community, breaking them down into simple advice and practical steps for schools.

Guests on the podcasts include former teacher, campaigner, author and speaker, the Honourable Stuart Lawrence, and Eve Doran, researcher at Black Learning Achievement and Mental Health (BLAM). The podcasts also feature the voices and experiences of teachers.

Listen to the podcast series, Talking racism and mental health in schools, discuss these issues in your school, and support staff to create a whole school community which is anti-racist.
