Due to technical problems that I do not fully understand some people
did not receive notice of the new date for the London meeting of the
Survivors History Group. This has been moved to Wednesday 30.9.2015
instead of 23.9.2015. I am sorry for any inconvenience and especially
sorry if this will prevent you coming. The move is to enable us to do
what we planned.

The possible plan for the next two meetings is

Wednesday 30.9.2015

Discussion of Splitting in Two: Mad Pride and Punk Rock Oblivion led
by Frank Bangay and Peter Campbell

David Kessel's Penny Poets Manifesto and the Schizophrenic Salvation
Network introduced by Peter Barham.

Further discussion of Mental Health Service Users in Research:
Critical Sociological Perspectives, edited by Patsy Staddon.
(Depending on what people bring)


Wednesday 25.11.2015

Discussion of Helen Spandler, Jill Anderson and Bob Sapey's new
collection of articles on Madness, distress and the politics of
disablement, introduced by Peter Campbell. This "explores the
challenges of applying disability theory and policy, including the
social model of disability, to madness and distress."

Further discussion of Mental Health Service Users in Research:
Critical Sociological Perspectives, edited by Patsy Staddon.
(Depending on what people bring)

Patsy's Group needs some money: The unfunded group, Women´s
Independent Alcohol Support, is trying to raise the money for
training to run an alcohol helpline for women. If we are to survive
we will need to help one another. See Shaping our Lives

its turn away from psychiatry towards sociology." Disability &
Society .... "A testament to how far the survivor movement has come
in the long struggle to get the experiences of mental health services
users taken seriously in the production of knowledge." Journal of
Social Policy
