    Universities UK: Mental Health and Wellbeing in Higher Education Programme

    Posted by Jill Anderson on January 13, 2017 at 13:18 0 Comments

    Universities UK has just established a Mental Health and Wellbeing in HE programme. 'The scope of the programme includes appropriate provision for those experiencing difficulties or mental illness as well as wider consideration of prevention and the support of good mental health.  Whilst the focus is on students in higher education, the approach recognises interdependencies between staff and student wellbeing and between HE and other sectors, and seeks to address these via partnership…

    Research

    Posted by Simon Rose on January 12, 2017 at 13:03 1 Comment

    I work as a lived experience development worker in the NHS. My role is to support and develop ways of getting the service receiver voice and perspective heard in undergraduate medical education around mental health.

    That's a mouthful. Truth is, I first came into contact with secondary mental health services 20 odd years ago when I was 25. I've been 'around the block a few times' and have acquired some knowledge and insights along the way - as have the overwhelming majority of people…

    Simon Says: Psychosis! HD 720

    Posted by Jill Anderson on January 11, 2017 at 11:51 1 Comment

    This powerful documentary features moving first hand accounts of psychosis. From three young people, who have shown the strength to not only share their stories but do so in an insightful and articulate manner. The film was predominantly made by someone who has experienced psychosis and has therefore been constructed from a unique perspective and understanding.

    Mind, Myth and Madness: are biological accounts of mental illness useful?

    Posted by Jill Anderson on January 4, 2017 at 12:38 0 Comments

    From schizophrenia to depression we assume our psychiatric diagnoses are real. But as the mental health epidemic turns global, the categories now seem like the cause. Is it time to abandon our biological account of mental illness? Or is it the best strategy we've got?.

    Trauma and Meaning Making - new book

    Posted by Jill Anderson on January 3, 2017 at 20:49 0 Comments

    Trauma and Meaning Making highlights multiple practices of meaning making after traumatic events in the lives of individuals and communities. Meaning making consists both in a personal journey towards a new way to exist and live in a world shattered by trauma and in public politics locating and defining what has happened. In both perspectives, the collection evaluates the impact achieved by naming the victim/s and thus the right of the victim/s to suffer from its aftermath or…
