Mental ill health accounts for some 15% of the disease burden in developed countries, yet spending on mental health research makes up just 5% of the total UK health research budget and psychiatry has been identified as a vulnerable clinical discipline.

In January 2012 the Academy formed a working group to develop a position paper on the training of academic psychiatrists in the UK.

The report aims to identify the challenges and barriers in recruiting and retaining trainees, and…

GREAT STUFF ON STORIFY #mhcurr

Recent seminar well portrayed on STORIFY - storyline holds together well and grabs attention - loads of useful links - pics add drama and human interest - tweets contribute massive sense of 'here and now' - no better example of value of stories in teaching and learning and applicability of apps such as STORIFY in enabling this. Mustn't forget to credit much much hard work from usual suspects in putting this together so quickly and professionally. THANK YOU

Using Our Own Lived Experience



All question and opinions welcome. Here's some starters to get us going:



'What About My Reputation?'

CREATIVE TWEETS

Blog
Hey Jill.
Just read Irene Mckintosh blog on creative tweeting. She has encouraged people to try and 'tweet' a work of fiction (limited edition obviously!)- I think this is a wonderful idea - and taking it further - we could tweet a rolling creative narrative - with people adding tweets that develop the story further - what do you and colleagues at the current seminar think?

A pedagogy for uncertain times

A pedagogy for uncertain times has itself to be uncertain.  It is open, it is daring, it is risky, it is, itself unpredictable. . .  A pedagogy for uncertainty will be ontologically disturbing and enthralling all at once.  It will be electric, as one move sparks another and in unpredictable ways. . . This pedagogy is a form of restrained anarchy; even a disciplined anarchy – with its spaces and its risks

Croatia: out of institutions, into the world

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,…

Quality in Undergraduate Education: How Powerful Knowledge Disrupts Inequality

Posted by Jill Anderson on November 18, 2017 at 12:00 0 Comments

Globally, the appetite for higher education is great, but what do students and societies gain? Quality in Undergraduate Education foregrounds the importance of knowledge acquisition at university. Many argue that university education is no longer a public good due to the costs incurred by students who are then motivated by the promise of lucrative employment rather than by studying a discipline for its own sake. McLean, Abbas and Ashwin, however, reveal a…

International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal

Posted by Jill Anderson on November 18, 2017 at 11:55 0 Comments

'The International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal (IIPDW) was created to respond to a glaring need in mental health: to develop ways for helping people withdraw from psychiatric drugs.

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…
