The Emotions Lab was made possible by support from the Wellcome Trust in the form of a Collaborative Award for the project ‘Living With Feeling: Emotional Health in History, Philosophy, and Experience’.
The ‘Living With Feeling’ project aims to use history and the humanities to help people articulate and move towards their own well-informed vision of emotional health.
