Catholic Spirituality and Mental Health


Dr Philippa Martyr from the University of Western Australia speaks about mental illness in our contemporary society and the insights of the Catholic intellectual tradition, particularly anthropology. Dr Martyr talks about the current state of mental health research and looks at alternative ways of thinking about mental health that are workable – and how they relate to our Catholic heritage.


This talk is produced by the Dawson Society for Philosophy and Culture of Perth, Western Australia. For more information and for similar lectures, visit the Dawson Society website or the Dawson Society Facebook page.
