As mental health problems often impact on an individual’s social relationships – because of stigma or the effect of the mental health problem on the individual, for example – it is important for health and social care workers to support people to maintain and develop their social…

Working with fathers to improve children's wellbeing

The idea of this site is to put practitioners who work with fathers in touch with some relevant research. The term 'work with fathers' here refers to any kind of help for men in a caring role - whether or not they are biological fathers - which is designed to improve the well-being of children. This might be some kind of parenting course (maybe alongside mothers); it might be a therapeutic session, or some kind of activity-based work; or it might be a less structured self-help…

Beyond the Usual Suspects

Beyond the Usual Suspects

The focus of this report is making it possible for everyone who wants to, to be more involved in and have more say over their lives and the services they use to live them. This aspiration has come to be framed in terms of ‘user involvement’.

Music Asylums: wellbeing through music in everyday life.

Taking a cue from Erving Goffman’s classic work, Asylums, Tia DeNora develops a novel interdisciplinary framework for music, health and wellbeing. Considering health and illness both in medical contexts and in the often-overlooked realm of everyday life, DeNora argues that these identities are by no means mutually exclusive. Moreover, she suggests that the promotion of health and more specifically, mental health, involves a great deal more than a concern with medication, genetic…

She ended up dropping out of university and eventually was admitted to a psychiatric unit. “I began to hear the alien speak to me, and that alien told me that I was a murderer, that it could control me, that it was going to…
