Enhancing learning and teaching about mental health across the disciplines
'In May 2012, the School of Disability Studies at Ryerson hosted an event entitled: Mad Positive in the Academy. This event brought engaged academics and community activists from four projects into dialogue about mad positive practices located at the intersection of mental health, formal education and social movements.
From 19 filmed interviews and roughly 7 hours of footage, we have created three short videos, or ‘web docs’ that discuss: what is means to be mad positive in the academy, discrimination in the neoliberal university, and, how to be a mad positive ally. All are grounded in the practice dilemmas expressed by conference participants, and the activist strategies they employ in partnership with or as members of the mad community.'
