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

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
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

Across the UK, there is a growing appreciation that mental health matters.

For government, it can affect productivity, demand for public services and levels of expenditure on out-of-work benefits. But as awareness of the importance of maintaining positive mental health continues to grow, and stigma relating to mental illness is slowly chipped away, other…
