Mental Health, Education and Therapeutic Philosophy

About the Project

Jointly funded by the British Academy and the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain, this project explores traditions of therapeutic philosophy (philosophy as a way of life, philosophy as care of the self and self-cultivation, philosophy of the ordinary) in response to calls by policy makers that schools should be teaching about mental health.

Emma Williams, Department of Education Studies, University of Warwick, is leading the project.

Alongside academic publications and policy recommendations, the project is producing a podcast series, featuring discussions about mental health with leading thinkers from philosophy, literature and the arts.
