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 :-) Dr. Colin King Collaborates with Mad Studies Birmingham on our first contribution to Mad Literature: A Response to the Mental Health Act White Paper 2021 We will be doing something very different and very exciting this month - collaborating on a paper with Dr. Colin King in response to the discussion we had last month about proposed changes to the Mental Health Act, after reading the National Service User Network's (NSUN) response to the Government White Paper. //www.nsun.org.uk/news/nsun-response-to-mhawp Colin has long campaigned and worked in this area of mental health, alongside highlighting the racial inequalities experienced by people from a Black background. For this particular session, the draft paper will only be sent to people who book for the session, and will be sent on the week commencing 1 March 2021. During the meeting we will discuss and shape the first draft, with the aim of the collaborative paper being sent to a journal for publication after Colin has completed the second draft. Contact Tamar if you have issues accessing this paper Our monthly Birmingham Mad Studies 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. 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.
