Maybe I Don't Belong Here: An audience with David Harewood

Royal College of Nursing Library and Heritage Centre

20/10/2021 18:30 - 20:00

In this special event actor David Harewood talks to us about his new book Maybe I don't belong here: A Memoir of Race, Identity, Breakdown and Recovery (Pan Macmillan, 2021). David will be in conversation with Simon Arday (Registered Mental Health Nurse, Mental Health Network Manager & the RCN's Expert Representative for Parity of Esteem) and Kojo Bonsu (Peer Involvement Worker), exploring what it means to be a person of colour navigating the mental health system. Drawing on expertise from Black health care professionals and those with lived experience, this event will ask what needs to be done to impact change in the system. Our panel will also take questions from activists, students and network members working in this area. 'As a Black British man I believe it is vital that I tell this story. It may be just one account from the perspective of a person of colour who has experienced this system, but it may be enough to potentially change an opinion or, more importantly, stop someone else from spinning completely out of control.' – David Harewood This online event is free and open to all. Please sign up to attend and you will be sent a Zoom link before the event.
