Are you a Lived Experience Practitioner (LXP)? (Mad) Academic? Student? Clinician? Service User? Carer? Mad Studies is open to EVERYONE... even with a National Lockdown! We will be ZOOMing in to a screen near you! This Month's Reading: Paper 1: 'Is Co-production Just Really Good PPI? Making Sense of Patient and Public Involvement and Co-production Networks' - Oli Williams, Glenn Robert, Graham P. Martin, Esmée Hanna, Jane O’Hara Paper 2: 'If not now, when? COVID-19, lived experience, and a moment for real change' - Nev Jones, Louuise Byrne, Sarah Carr You can buy Asylum magazine here: You can read MadCovid Diaries here: No meetings at the University during Lockdown, so join us on Zoom using the link that you will be sent when you book online. All welcome! ‘Mad Studies’ is a field of scholarship, theory, and activism about the lived experiences, history, cultures, and politics about people who may identify as 'Mad', mentally ill, psychiatric survivors, consumers, service users, patients, neurodiverse and disabled. Our monthly Birmingham group has a central focus on supporting Lived Experience Practitioners (i.e. peer support workers, service user researchers, service user consultants, etc) in their work through developing knowledge and being with others who work in their field. However, in the true spirit of 'Mad Studies', others who have an interest in this area are welcome to attend and learn. LXP's work alongside many other people, so sharing knowledge with others can help develop mutual understanding and strengthen working relationships. The group starts by either volunteers or the facilitator giving a synopsis of the week’s reading so that everyone has a reminder of the content and can take part in conversations if they haven't been able to read the selected material. 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. 2020 Dates: Thursday 3 September Thursday 1 October Thursday 5 November Thursday 3 December
