Service Description

Are you a Lived Experience Practitioner (LXP)? (Mad) Academic? Student? Clinician? Service User? Carer? Come and join us - Mad Studies is for everyone :-) For 2023 we are kicking the year off with one of our favourite themes: Power sharing; Co-production vs. Tokenism. We regularly discuss the subject of co-optation and appropriation of the original work of activists and lived experience professionals - whether activists, peer support workers, service development or organisational culture change agents. This paper takes the discussion into the world of research - what is tokenistic - what language is being used to hide tokenistic practice, and how can researchers & organisations do better? We are very blessed to have such an important paper written by regular faces at Mad Studies Birmingham - Nev Jones, Karen Machin & Matthew Jackman are some of the authors of this paper. Some of the eight authors will be joining us to discuss this paper. "Strengthening Review and Publication of Participatory Mental Health Research to Promote Empowerment and Prevent Co-optation" - authored by Michelle Colder Carras, Ph.D., Karen Machin, P.G.Dip., Marie Brown, Ph.D., Terry-Lee Marttinen, M.A., Charlotte Maxwell, M.Ed., Barbara Frampton, Matthew Jackman, B.S.W., Nev Jones, Ph.D. You can read it here: Please book your FREE place so that we have an idea of numbers to expect and can send you details of the papers being considered and Zoom details.
