Three green gears working togetherComponent Evaluation: Discussion Based Activity

Timing: 30 minutes; flexible
Mode: In-class; online

After going through the module and unit content hold a discussion that looks at the various intersections pointed out by Ashley. You may also post these questions to an online forum for an asynchronous discussion.

  1. What do interlocking oppressions allow us to understand about the pervasion of mental health stigma and how it is experienced?
  2. Institutions that are embedded in the structures that the artist addresses are being tasked with changing mental health care despite their complicity in upholding oppressions. How can power be distributed more equitably, and change realized? 
  3. What is the role of intersectional resistance for addressing the power imbalances in the mental health system?
