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

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

Medical Education - Mythology Special Issue

Posted by Jill Anderson on December 12, 2017 at 16:41 0 Comments

Myths and legends exist in every culture. Typically, they are so commonly believed that they are not noticed or questioned by most people within the culture. Even in this day and age of “evidence-based education” many myths survive through assumption, authority, or poorly grounded claims that the evidence says ‘such and such’.

In an effort to shed light on broadly held views that deserve closer scrutiny, if not outright abandonment, Medical Education is planning a…

Academic Ableism: Disability and higher education - new book

Posted by Jill Anderson on November 24, 2017 at 20:00 0 Comments

Academic Ableism brings together disability studies and institutional critique to recognize the ways that disability is composed in and by higher education, and rewrites the spaces, times, and economies of disability in higher education to place disability front and center.  For too long, argues Jay Timothy Dolmage, disability has been constructed as the antithesis of higher education, often positioned as a distraction, a drain, a problem to be solved. The ethic of…

Croatia: out of institutions, into the world

Posted by Jill Anderson on November 19, 2017 at 20:00 0 Comments

More than 8,200 people with intellectual or psychosocial disabilities in Croatia remain in segregated institutions and psychiatric hospitals with little control over decisions that affect their lives, Human Rights Watch said. While the Croatian government has made some progress in protecting the rights of people with disabilities, the process of moving people out of institutions and into community-based living arrangements has been limited and slow. In a video released by Human Rights Watch,…

Quality in Undergraduate Education: How Powerful Knowledge Disrupts Inequality

Posted by Jill Anderson on November 18, 2017 at 12:00 0 Comments

Globally, the appetite for higher education is great, but what do students and societies gain? Quality in Undergraduate Education foregrounds the importance of knowledge acquisition at university. Many argue that university education is no longer a public good due to the costs incurred by students who are then motivated by the promise of lucrative employment rather than by studying a discipline for its own sake. McLean, Abbas and Ashwin, however, reveal a…

International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal

Posted by Jill Anderson on November 18, 2017 at 11:55 0 Comments

'The International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal (IIPDW) was created to respond to a glaring need in mental health: to develop ways for helping people withdraw from psychiatric drugs.

Mental health has failed to provide support to people who want to reduce or withdraw from their psychiatric drugs. Often, people are simply told it is a bad idea, and thus are left to try to reduce or withdraw without the support they need.

Indeed, psychiatric drugs have been…
