This week we had a conversation with Dawn Whitaker, from the department of sociology at Lancaster University, about mental health and human rights. We talked quite a bit about the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. On Tuesday 16 June, CCrAMHP will be hosting the launch of ‘Madness, Distress and the Politics of Disablement‘ – see HERE for further details. If you were at last night’s meeting and have any comments, please add them here. Please, anyone, feel free to add resources that others might find of interest.
