Mad Studies 3 November 2022
Are you a Lived Experience Practitioner (LXP)? (Mad) Academic? Student? Clinician? Service User? Carer? Come and join us - Mad Studies is for everyone :-) Mad Studies Birmingham is passionate about Mad Knowledge & Mad Literature. Diana Rose will be joining us to discuss her new book, 'Mad Knowledges and User Led Research (The Politics of Mental Health and Illness)' Like many 'Mad' texts, this one is expensive and RRP is over £100, and if you are feeling flush you can buy it on Amazon. However, pop down to your globally-local Mad Studies this Friday, and you can be part of 'reading' the book through discussion, as we converse on the excellent themes contained within. We always do encourage members to ask their local public, university and NHS Trust/ Mental Health services libraries to purchase the texts as soon as they are purchased. Most librarians won't be aware of new texts in this area but many library staff are very friendly and appreciate being approached and asked about texts of interest to purchase from their budgets.
