An event to celebrate World Mental Health Day for anyone with an interest in mental health research. About this Event Mental and physical health are equally important and indivisible, since there is 'no health without mental health'. People who use mental health services often experience very poor physical health. This represents a profound health inequality that is poorly understood and underappreciated. Over recent years we have used World Mental Health Day to show how the University of York and our partners contribute to better mental health for all. This year you can hear about our ambitious plan and the partnerships we have formed to bring innovative solutions to close the health gap for people who use mental health services by putting mental and physical health on the same page. For further information please see a copy of the draft programme. If you have any questions about this event please contact either Carol Taylor c.taylor@york.ac.uk or Ruth Wadman ruth.wadman@york.ac.uk

Partition Voices: Untold British stories

October 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Bowland Auditorium, Berrick Saul Building, University of York YO10 5DD + Google Map

Dotted across homes in Britain are people who were witnesses to one of the most tumultuous events of the twentieth century. Yet their memory of India's Partition in 1947 has been shrouded in silence. Kavita Puri ‘s father was twelve when he found himself one of the millions of Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims caught up in the devastating aftermath of a hastily drawn border, dividing the Indian subcontinent into India and Pakistan. He remained silent – like so many – about the horrors he had seen for seventy years. When her father finally spoke out, opening up a forgotten part of Puri's family history, she was compelled to seek out the stories of South Asians who were once subjects of the British Raj, and are now British citizens. Determined to preserve these accounts – of the end of empire and the difficult birth of two nations – Puri records a series of remarkable first-hand testimonies. They reveal Partition's enduring legacy for British South Asians and their descendants in Britain today.
