Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines

I was quite surprised to read this piece at the end of last week, and even more surprised to see very little traffic on twitter, and the like, about it. DE, a man with learning disabilities, will be sterilised without his consent- fair measures can be taken to make this happen. While the full story is likely to be complex, it seems no-one was really disagreeing with the need for this to happen, and DE didn't want to have any more children. Presumbaly he didn't want to be operated on though,…Continue

Good to see you last week and I am now finally able to access this propoerly.
HOpe to see you again soon.
Hi Bill, Thanks for your message. I just came across it whilst searches for mental health resources. Best wishes, Liz
Hi Bill, not sure when I first heard about MHHE - think I met Jill Anderson somewhere? Anyway it became very useful to me when I took on a job for Leeds Mind (originally for YHIP) writing a monthly e-bulletin about Employment & Learning Skills in Yorks & Humber, and I was getting a regular mailing. Then I lost contact when I changed my e-mail address after a bad case of hacking! So when my friend and colleague Mike Bush sent me a link to this site I thought it would be a way to renew contact.
Not sure if we've met? You don't look familiar but my memory's shocking! I haven't had a lot to do with the Metropolitan - although it's very implicated in my own mental health story since I had my first 'breakdown' there when a student in 1975! Maybe that's why I've avoided it! My work's mainly been in advocacy and involvement, though I wrote a couple of plays about mental health which were used as course materials by the OU, and the creative side of things has always been my ambition.
Good to be in contact, Terry
Thanks for your welcome message, makes a real difference - as in, it makes membership active and warming which I really appreciate. I've been in the email loop via Jill for about three years now and only realised I wasn't a member of the site the other day - or rather - didn't even think about membership issues either way. It's good to find another space in which I might express my ideas and values in re mental health
So - thanks.
All the best
Thank you for the message Bill! Yes I lead our PgCHE programme and we are trying to help participants think about the inclusion agenda from the widest possible angles. So the mhhe is a useful resource for us to flag for staff right across the University. Best wishes, Clare.
Thanks for the welcome Bill, thats much appreciated.
Hi Bill, Sorry for not replying sooner, however I have had a rather busy week and I have not had a chance to even open my laptop. Thanks for your message, I am finding the hub a source of lots of great information!
