    The New Mental Health was defined by Mark Brown in a keynote speech to the Asia Pacific Conference on Mental Health in 2012.

    The New Mental Health is not so much a movement, but a broad range of projects, organisations and services that are moving in similar directions.

    Broadly, the defining characteristics of the new mental health are:

    • The New Mental Health is pragmatic not ideological

    From mental illness to a social model of madness and distress

    Posted by Jill Anderson on June 8, 2016 at 15:30 0 Comments

    In 2010, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation published the findings of a national project exploring the views of mental services users/survivors and disabled people about how they felt mental health issues were understood in society and how they themselves understood them,Towards a Social Model of Madness and Distress?. This highlighted that most participants felt that a medical model dominated both public and professional thinking and that this was stigmatising and unhelpful and that further…

    Language and Identity survey - the Icarus project.

    Posted by Jill Anderson on June 6, 2016 at 11:00 0 Comments

    How we talk about ourselves matters. Whether we choose to name our emotions and experiences using the language of mental health professionals, academics, faith communities, healers, physicians, or others reflects how we see ourselves and view the world. There are many ways in which people wind up receiving mental health treatments/interventions. This can include psychotherapy and hospitals but for many of us may also come from interactions with pastors, physicians, school officials,…

    This Mental Health Foundation report explores the relationship between dementia, mental health and mental health problems.

    The main finding of this review is that…

    Making room for madness in mental health: The Psychoanalytic Understanding of Psychotic Communication - New Book

    Posted by Jill Anderson on June 2, 2016 at 13:51 0 Comments

    In this book, Marcus Evans argues that in addition to providing a helpful treatment for patients who suffer from serious psychological difficulties, psychoanalytic thinking can also help mental health staff develop a better understanding of their patients and complement other ways of thinking about mental disturbance. 

    Working with people with mental illness can be rewarding and enlightening. It can also be disturbing, frightening, boring, frustrating, anxiety provoking and…
