Hello Max,

and welcome to the MHHE hub and as you might imagine, besides being very pleased you've joined us, I'm curious about how you came across the hub.  We'll be picking up activity over the next few weeks including some opportunities for real time chat which I hope won't be a time zone problem for you.

Best wishes

Bill

Many thanks for adding yourself to the map Max. I see that you are teaching mental health on a social work programme. You may be interested in this document, which Bob Sapey and I (both based here in Lancaster) were involved in drawing together.  It is intended to be an evolving document - rather than something static.  Curriculum Guide: Mental Health and Distress .  It is one of a series of guides, held by the College of Social Work here in the UK.  The others are listed here.

You need to be a member of Mental Health in Higher Education Hub to add comments!

Posted by Jill Anderson on November 19, 2017 at 20:00 0 Comments

More than 8,200 people with intellectual or psychosocial disabilities in Croatia remain in segregated institutions and psychiatric hospitals with little control over decisions that affect their lives, Human Rights Watch said. While the Croatian government has made some progress in protecting the rights of people with disabilities, the process of moving people out of institutions and into community-based living arrangements has been limited and slow. In a video released by Human Rights Watch,…

McLean, Abbas and Ashwin, however, reveal a…

Mental health has failed to provide support to people who want to reduce or withdraw from their psychiatric drugs. Often, people are simply told it is a bad idea, and thus are left to try to reduce or withdraw without the support they need.

Indeed, psychiatric drugs have been…
