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

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.

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

Civil Society Organisations in Turbulent Times - a gilded web: new book

Fundamental changes to British social policy have seen civil society organizations assume a significant role in welfare provision, but chasing money and status have come at a high price. What has happened to integrity and morality, when many voluntary service organizations have become trapped in a gilded web of neo-liberal arrangements and a rapidly privatizing services industry? Why are they reinforcing the social, economic and political systems they were originally established to…
