    Cultural Perspectives on Mental Wellbeing: spiritual interpretations of symptoms in medical practice

    Posted by Jill Anderson on April 26, 2017 at 16:15 0 Comments

    As human migration brings an ever more diverse range of people, cultures and beliefs into contact, Western medical systems must adapt to cater for the different approaches it encounters towards illness, the body, gender, mental health and death.

    Based upon training courses taught by the author to staff at hospitals, mental health professionals, and on degree courses, this complete resource provides an essential foundation for understanding the complex and manifold approaches to…

    Why did I go Mad? - BBC Horizon programme

    Posted by Jill Anderson on April 25, 2017 at 19:00 0 Comments

    For hundreds of years, psychiatry has treated voices and hallucinations as an enemy - regarding them as 'insanity' or 'madness' and seeing them as something to be quashed and even frightened of. But today, new scientific and psychological insights into how the brain works are leading to a radical rethink on what such experiences are - and how they should be treated.

    Horizon follows three people living with voices, hallucinations and…

    Posted by Jill Anderson on April 13, 2017 at 16:50 0 Comments

    Re/Visioning Depression: Creative Approaches to “Feeling Bad” Edited by Robin Alex McDonald

    What is depression? … An “imagined sun, bright and black at the same time?” … A “noonday demon?” … A dead fish? In literature, comics, art, and film, we witness new conceptualizations of depression come into being.

    Building a new community psychology of mental health: spaces, places, people and activities - new book

    Posted by Jill Anderson on April 12, 2017 at 12:13 0 Comments

    This book provides a much-needed account of informal community-based approaches to working with mental distress. It starts from the premise that contemporary mainstream psychiatry and psychology struggle to capture how distress results from complex embodied arrays of social experiences that are embedded within specific historical, cultural, political and economic settings. The authors challenge mainstream understandings of mental health that position a naive public in need of mental…

    Teaching critical approaches to depression and anxiety when you are depressed and anxious - by Jane EM Callaghan

    "In the many years I have taught mental health, I have always wrestled with a fundamental contradiction. On the one hand, I have a political commitment to an anti-diagnostic, and anti-medicalisation stance. On the other hand, I have struggled life long with anxiety, trauma responses, and depression.

    This year, I came to teach my classes on anxiety and depression 9 months into my treatment with duloxetine. This has been a life saving drug for…
