This month The Salon is centred on the theme of 'representations' and mental health.
We are delighted to welcome two provocateurs to get discussions started:

She has written about trauma, neurodiversity and mental health, and is currently working on a book about masculinity, suicide, and mental health.
Anna Jamieson is a Lecturer in the History of Art Department, University of London. She is an interdisciplinary art historian specialising in visual and material cultures of the eighteenth and nineteenth century, with a particular interest in the history of psychiatry, women's mental illness, self-care and patient agency. She is currently writing her first book about asylum tourism in late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century England.
