    Group Therapy: Mental Distress in a Digital Age - Liverpool

    Posted by Jill Anderson on March 26, 2015 at 11:02 0 Comments

    It is commonly noted that one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health issue at some time in their lives. What is less often discussed is why in a wealthy and technologically advanced part of the world, so many of us continue to struggle with poor mental health.

    For many the presence of digital technologies is exasperating this problem, by altering our sense of self and our social relationships. Meanwhile, others suggest that technological innovation is a…

    Madness in Civilization: A Cultural History of Insanity, from the Bible to Freud, from the Madhouse to Modern Medicine

    Posted by Jill Anderson on March 25, 2015 at 19:44 0 Comments

    The loss of reason, a sense of alienation from the commonsense world we all like to imagine we inhabit, the shattering emotional turmoil that seizes hold and won’t let go—these are some of the traits we associate with madness.

    Fit Mind, Fit Job: from evidence to practice in mental health and work

    Posted by Jill Anderson on March 25, 2015 at 15:38 0 Comments

    The costs of mental ill-health for individuals, employers and society at large are enormous. Mental distress is responsible for a very significant loss of potential labour supply, high rates of unemployment, and a high incidence of sickness absence and reduced productivity at work. Following an introductory report (Sick on the Job: Myths and Realities about Mental Health and Work) and nine country reports, this final synthesis report summarizes the findings from the participating…
