Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
Mad in Asia is an online platform whose primary mission is to contribute to changing the narrative about madness and mental distress.
Mad in Asia hopes to showcase narratives that are contextually relevant for the Asia region that focus on the inclusion of persons with psychosocial disabilities as well as challenge the dominance of western biomedical psychiatry and clinical psychology. Led by persons with psychosocial disabilities from Asian countries and in collaboration with allies including cross disability activists, mental health workers, academics, social justice campaigners, family and community members, Mad in Asia hopes to be a space for negotiating and nurturing such narratives. Mad in Asia welcomes everybody interested in joining this online community for change.
