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 :-) Mad Studies Birmingham is passionate about Mad Knowledge & Mad Literature. *** NEW DATE, POSTPONED FROM 9 TO 30 JUNE *** The Oor Mad History project are joining us after the release of their SECOND book! The project, based in Lothian, Scotland, aims to reclaim and promote the history of activism and collective advocacy by people with mental health issues. The book brings together the memories and recollections of the people involved in collective advocacy and ‘mad activism’ in Lothian from 2010 to 2020. The Oor Mad History group, who are all people with their own experience of mental health issues, have worked together to research and create the book. The group gathered 10 written submissions and conducted 24 oral history interviews with people involved in collective advocacy and activism. It is their voices that are recorded in the book. It also brings to life some of the words and images from the Oor Mad History archive. Please contact lindsay@capsadvocacy.org to get your hands on a copy! Alternatively you can download the book here: https://capsadvocacy.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/OMHBookCompleteLoRes.pdf In an exciting & unexpected late addition to our line up, our very own Mad Black Pixie (Allison Joseph) & David Gibbs will discuss their podcast created at this year's BIGSPD conference, where they brought the lack of ethnic diversity to the table. Those of you who know Allison & David know that they pulled no punches & didn't disappoint: https://soundcloud.com/national-elf-service/david-gibbs-and-allison-joseph Twitter: @MadBlackPixie @Mental_Elf @BIG_SPD
