Thanks Jill, that's very helpful and supportive. Think I must have dropped off the MHHE radar because of a change of email address which I didn't notify. Will catch up again at later date. Peter

my mad space - what or not to share - exactly the issues i am pondering on:

- there clearly needs to be safety and privacy - including being able to join without making this known in a wider context - i have academic colleagues who are often reluctant to disclose to peers or to their learners for instance

- i very much hope there will be opportunity for the wider network to engage with and learn from the experiences within this liminal space - there is great potential here

- i feel i am no more than a portal to the group's existence - but hope collaborative ownership will help to address these dilemmas and create liberating and enriching boundaries

- i rely on you for technical wisdom - i have none

re the ning network:

lol jill !! - clearly a hotspot!! - and many many good points i thought - for me, the problem was fourfold:

not wanting to automatically impose a 'friend add' onto anyone before i told them about My Mad Space -

feeling tentative about pressuring anyone with a direct 'invite' -

and being quite unable to put a public post on anyones page when i was not certain if they had disclosed their mental health status

but all in all wanting to extend a warm and encouraging individual welcome to anyone who might benefit from coming in to My Mad Space

i have ultimately gone down the friends add route
At 15:43 on February 3, 2013, julie gosling said…
(having said this - i am now paranoid - in case people i want to add as friends think i assume they have a lived experience of distress - it is not the only reason i network with others - in fact that would be soooo reductionist - and imply we were only capable of talking about that particular experience - )

thanks jill for your lovely friendship and sharing

Jill - I really appreciate that! - I did plough through the 7 pages of Ning suggestions - but was left no clearer in terms of best way forward - at any rate there is already a nucleus of membership which means we can start to discuss all of the privacy versus sharing/disclosure issues collectively

Mental health and neoliberalism - video of New School of Economics event

Posted by Jill Anderson on February 10, 2018 at 22:23 0 Comments

Can today's crisis in mental health be seen as the result of neoliberalism? We asked the panelists to reflect on the aftermath of the 2007/08 financial crisis and the austerity policies which followed, but then to engage with how the slashing of expenditure on public services and increase in private debt has been met with questions around whether these factors are exacerbating mental health problems. This event titled, ‘Mental Health and Neoliberalism’, sought to situate the growing…

Afflicted: how vulnerability can heal medical education and practice

Posted by Jill Anderson on February 7, 2018 at 22:47 0 Comments

In Afflicted, Nicole Piemonte examines the preoccupation in medicine with cure over care, arguing that the traditional focus on biological intervention keeps medicine from addressing the complex realities of patient suffering. Although many have pointed to the lack of compassion and empathy in medical practice, few have considered the deeper philosophical, psychological, and ontological reasons for it. Piemonte fills that gap, examining why it is that…
