    Drawing from mindfulness education and social justice teaching, this book explores an anti-oppressive pedagogy for university and college classrooms.

Yet on a day-to-day basis, services continue to operate within the medicalised status quo. One of the aims of this conference, organised by PCCS books, will be to look at how we can implement realistic, practical changes in our mental health practice, education and lives, in order to continue the progression from…
