Hi Jill, thank you for this encouraging feedback. I am still developing this concept and looking at it in a variety of disciplines and contexts. I would be keen to attend a conference in the future. Best wishes, Caryl

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

Yes - I can imagine!  Glad that the information is being useful.

hi jill - a query - i wanted to message torsten but i cant see how to do this as he has yet to respond to my 'friend' request - we seem to be in a sort of limbo space?? - can you help please?

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 for your interest Jill.My book is about promoting positive mental health in poetry form.It helped me a lot when I was at a very low point in my life.It is called Aspects of Life and published by chipmunkapublishing.com.

thanks jill for your lovely friendship and sharing
At 16:11 on February 4, 2013, julie gosling said…
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

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

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 14, 2017 at 18:26 0 Comments

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. 
Recovery, Mental Health and Inequality contributes to the debate about the…

Critical Psychiatry: a biography - Ian Cummins

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 13, 2017 at 8:43 0 Comments

Critical Psychiatry outlines the history of a group of thinkers that has come to be known as the anti-psychiatry movement. Though it has been called a movement, the individual thinkers’ and authors’ ideas were often in conflict but what they share is a critical perspective on psychiatry as a discipline and institutionalised modes of care. 

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

What is the ‘Ragged University’ and how might you, and/or students, get involved?

Posted by Jill Anderson on June 8, 2017 at 15:00 0 Comments

Ragged University began with four people thinking about how ideas behind the Ragged Schools initiative might be applied in a Higher Education context.  It takes learning outside the walls of formal higher education institutions. The project has at its core a belief in the value of creating opportunities for people, who love what they do, to share what moves them.  It is founded on the idea that universal education, free of charge, is a basic…
