Mental Health & Class, Chloë Maughan
In this episode Chloë and I explore mental health and class, looking closely at how wealth and poverty impact access to services. We explore how poverty can exacerbate mental illness and wealth has the potential get you quicker support, potentially aiding a quicker recovery. Chloë shared some of her own experiences with receiving support and being able to access it, as well as introducing me to the “happiness policy” exploring how instead of GDP policy could be measured in terms of population satisfaction.
Chloë Maughan is a writer and mental health researcher.
