Countering discrimination with community groups

She is also the initiator and coordinator of a Lincolnshire community group for families coping with Tourettes Syndrome and its associated conditions including OCD, depression, ADHD and Autism. Mal is the author of many books and papers relevant to the themes of the conference.

In her key note lecture Mal will explain concepts such as prejudice and disadvantage.
