A history of the ward in 10 and a half objects - Lancet essay by Charlotte Walker

Posted by Jill Anderson on July 24, 2017 at 18:16 0 Comments

The first time I was admitted to a psychiatric unit my preconceptions were challenged. It was not scary, or at least not most of the time. It was, however, boring, something I hadn't really expected, and above all, it was odd. Experiences that staff and more seasoned patients took for granted were to me surprising, even bizarre, catching my attention and making me a participant observer of my own care. Here I have curated several objects representing the closed environment of the ward.…

Links between mental health academics and student support services

Posted by Jill Anderson on July 21, 2017 at 13:00 2 Comments

Are there close links, in your institution, between people involvement in teaching/learning about mental distress on the one hand, and student support services on the other?  

Do you think such connections are important and, if so, why?

I've recently been involved in a number of discussions about this question and would really value any thoughts.  Please use the comments box or contact me.  Many thanks.
