Illness and wellness are directly linked to political power and economic wealth and dispossession. Greater incidents of poor health are found within marginalised communities which usually suffer intersectional discriminations. At the same time, public servants, NHS staff and community workers are experiencing increasing poor health with diminishing support.
In our societies in which individuals are made responsible for their wellbeing regardless of their circumstances, we are questioning how mindfulness may become part of community health policies and strategies. We understand this will involve working at different levels and across sectors to forge meaningful, practicable policies, strategies and interventions.
This online four-part webinar series is still under construction. It will follow the format of our other trainings.
