Book Launch: ‘The Austerity Cure’ by Michelle Jamieson

Free for members

Saturday 25th January, 6pm-8pm

Outwith is delighted to welcome University of Glasgow psychologist Michelle Jamieson for the launch of her book The Austerity Cure, published by Edinburgh-based Luna Press.

Drawing on extensive interviews with people in Glasgow who have lived through complex mental health problems and benefit sanctions, Jamieson builds a fascinating and nuanced picture of austerity’s effects on physical, social and mental wellbeing.

Join us to hear Jamieson talk about her research and her insights into how austerity changes people’s quality of life, both in subtle shifts in self-regard and in more serious deterioration in mental health.

Refreshments will be available. No wheelchair access (apologies).
