DE in the Midlands

Posted on August 19, 2013 at 14:14 1 Comment

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,…

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

Hi Bill,

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.

Festive Wishes,

Janie

Heyyy Bill - please excuse me if you get this twice - I'm still learning - thank you for your warm greeting - it makes a real difference! - yes I'm hooking up with my usual suspects and a few unusual ones to boot - I look forward to some active networking - my kind regards - Julie

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.

Mental health and neoliberalism - video of New School of Economics event

Posted by Jill Anderson on February 10, 2018 at 22:23 0 Comments

Can today's crisis in mental health be seen as the result of neoliberalism? We asked the panelists to reflect on the aftermath of the 2007/08 financial crisis and the austerity policies which followed, but then to engage with how the slashing of expenditure on public services and increase in private debt has been met with questions around whether these factors are exacerbating mental health problems. This event titled, ‘Mental Health and Neoliberalism’, sought to situate the growing…

Afflicted: how vulnerability can heal medical education and practice

Posted by Jill Anderson on February 7, 2018 at 22:47 0 Comments

In Afflicted, Nicole Piemonte examines the preoccupation in medicine with cure over care, arguing that the traditional focus on biological intervention keeps medicine from addressing the complex realities of patient suffering. Although many have pointed to the lack of compassion and empathy in medical practice, few have considered the deeper philosophical, psychological, and ontological reasons for it. Piemonte fills that gap, examining why it is that…
