Online report launch: Racism, mental health and pre-crime policing: the ethics of Vulnerability Support Hubs

Medact's upcoming report Racism, mental health and pre-crime policing: the ethics of Vulnerability Support Hubs is based on documents obtained through a series of long-running Freedom of Information requests. It exposes how a counterterrorism police-led project blurs the boundaries between security and care in disturbing and dangerous ways. We will hear from the three report co-authors and other experts in the field:

  • Dr Hilary Aked – Medact’s Research and Policy Manager
  • Dr Tarek Younis – Cultural and critical clinical psychologist and Lecturer in Psychology at Middlesex University
  • Dr Charlotte Heath Kelly – Reader in Politics and International Studies, University of Warwick
  • Vicki Nash ─ Head of Policy, Campaigns and Public Affairs at Mind
