Hi Andrea

 

Welcome to the hub! 

 

Thanks too for setting up a group.  I just wondered if there is any way that the focus could be more reflected in the title (ie the fact that it relates to cognitive difficulties?) as that is all that people will see in the list of groups. Fine if that isn't doable.  I just want to keep the groups distinguishable if I can, and suspect that there will be a number with a focus on service user and carer involvement/expertise.

 

Can you let me know what you think, and then I will approve the group.

 

Many thanks,

Jill

Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality: Chinese Ethnic Minorities as Mental Health Service Users.

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 14, 2017 at 18:26 0 Comments

This book uses the rich narratives of the recovery journeys of Chinese mental health service users in the UK – a perceived ‘hard-to-reach group’ and largely invisible in mental health literature – to illustrate the myriad ways that social inequalities such as class, ethnicity and gender contribute to service users' distress and mental ill-health, as well as shape their subsequent recovery journeys. 
Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality contributes to the debate about the…

Critical Psychiatry: a biography - Ian Cummins

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 13, 2017 at 8:43 0 Comments

Critical Psychiatry outlines the history of a group of thinkers that has come to be known as the anti-psychiatry movement. Though it has been called a movement, the individual thinkers’ and authors’ ideas were often in conflict but what they share is a critical perspective on psychiatry as a discipline and institutionalised modes of care. 

The current crisis in mental health services means that it is time to examine once again the key themes of critical…

What is the ‘Ragged University’ and how might you, and/or students, get involved?

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 8, 2017 at 15:00 0 Comments

The project has at its core a belief in the value of creating opportunities for people, who love what they do, to share what moves them.  It is founded on the idea that universal education, free of charge, is a basic…

Civil Society Organisations in Turbulent Times - a gilded web: new book

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 6, 2017 at 13:52 0 Comments

Fundamental changes to British social policy have seen civil society organizations assume a significant role in welfare provision, but chasing money and status have come at a high price. What has happened to integrity and morality, when many voluntary service organizations have become trapped in a gilded web of neo-liberal arrangements and a rapidly privatizing services industry? Why are they reinforcing the social, economic and political systems they were originally established to…
