Asylums power and citizenship 800x600

Join the School of Health Sciences for this inaugural lecture, delivered by Mike Slade, Professor of Mental Health Recovery and Social Inclusion.

Recovery – living as well as possible – has emerged internationally as a movement of global transformation in mental health. We are learning that supporting the recovery of people living with mental health problems will involve changing mental health systems and changing society. Professor Slade will describe his research investigating how mental health services can best support recovery, and will then identify the social and political challenges which now need to be addressed if the transition from being a patient (one of ‘them’) to being a citizen (one of ‘us’) is to be completed.

Admission free, all welcome. Please book your place by emailing
