Areas of interest and expertise
I am currently the Field Lead for Pre-Registration Mental Health Nursing at the University of Bradford and the Programme Lead for Psychological Therapies for Post-Registration Professionals.

I am currently pursuing a doctorate in ethnographic research around narratives of people with 'severe mental health difficulties' - the topic area is currently in progress.

I am also currently involved in qualitative research into experiences of barriers to accessing support and care for people with mental health difficulties as part of an Urban Living Programme Bid.

I am a member of the International Advisory Group on the BHIRCH project (Better Health in Care Homes) currently exploring how care homes can promote better health for people with dementia.

I've recently published a book on Recovering from Psychosis: Empirical Evidence and Lived Experience with Routledge. http://www.routledge.com/catalogs/nursing_midwifery_and_health1/1/9/

I've also co-written a chapter in Torn and Greasley's Psychology for Nurses on 'Altered Mental States' For Polity Press.

I'm now working on some writing projects around Stigma and Othering, and Critical Mental Health Nursing: Exploring Recovery that are in their early stages and welcome potential collaborators from all backgrounds.

My key interests are developing critical recovery oriented approaches, narrative competency, and psychological therapies.

Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality: Chinese Ethnic Minorities as Mental Health Service Users.

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 14, 2017 at 18:26 0 Comments

This book uses the rich narratives of the recovery journeys of Chinese mental health service users in the UK – a perceived ‘hard-to-reach group’ and largely invisible in mental health literature – to illustrate the myriad ways that social inequalities such as class, ethnicity and gender contribute to service users' distress and mental ill-health, as well as shape their subsequent recovery journeys. 
Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality contributes to the debate about the…

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 13, 2017 at 8:43 0 Comments

Critical Psychiatry outlines the history of a group of thinkers that has come to be known as the anti-psychiatry movement. Though it has been called a movement, the individual thinkers’ and authors’ ideas were often in conflict but what they share is a critical perspective on psychiatry as a discipline and institutionalised modes of care. 

The current crisis in mental health services means that it is time to examine once again the key themes of critical…

What is the ‘Ragged University’ and how might you, and/or students, get involved?

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 8, 2017 at 15:00 0 Comments

The project has at its core a belief in the value of creating opportunities for people, who love what they do, to share what moves them.  It is founded on the idea that universal education, free of charge, is a basic…
