Personality disorder: prison vs community

Hi Sue, Thanks for your message. Are you interested in meeting up around the lived experience educator network that I am attempting to establish with colleagues from Nottingham and Sheffield? Would happily meet up for a conversation about how we could work together>
If you are looking to meet about service provision for people who have been diagnosed/labelled with a personality disorder in Derbyshire then I'm probably not the right person to talk to. I'm aware that there are plans to redesign the service offered in Derbyshire shortly and that the new service has had some input from people with lived experience via the commissioned engagement service, Mental Health Together. I can try and put you in touch with the people leading that project if you wanted to have a conversation about what the new service is going to look like?
Either way, thanks for getting in touch. Simon

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Unlearning through Mad Studies: disruptive pedagogical praxis

Posted by Jill Anderson on October 26, 2020 at 19:00 0 Comments

Medical discourse currently dominates as the defining framework for madness in educational praxis. Consequently, ideas rooted in a mental health/illness binary abound in higher learning, as both curriculum content and through institutional procedures that reinforce structures of normalcy. While madness, then, is included in university spaces, this inclusion proceeds in ways that continue to pathologize madness and disenfranchise mad people.

This paper offers Mad…
