Akiko Hart, CEO of the National Survivor User Network (NSUN), shares user-led mental health initiatives and key learnings from the pandemic period in conversation with researcher China Mills. In response to Covid-19, NSUN launched a fund for user-led groups, supporting diverse and self-directed approaches to community mental health.

This podcast episode is adapted from an event we ran as part of Through the Portal: Healing Justice Beyond Pandemic – a community-led public health programme through a disability justice and anti-oppression lens. The programme was launched in 2020, in response to the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on communities that are marginalised.
