Title of Talk:
Loneliness and Social Isolation by Alex Dunedin
This is a collection of photos showing the work which was brought together that made the Mad World Exhibition in 2017. You can read about the ideas by following THIS LINK. The exhibition held at its heart a space where questioning of attitudes to mental health, mental illness, madness and identity was encouraged particularly in light of the Psychiatric Survivors Movement which legitimately challenges and drives forward understandings today.
In July 2017 Asylum Magazine for democratic psychiatry had it’s 30th anniversary and hosted a conference in Manchester. Over a day a number of presentations and discussions took place examining various aspects of psychiatry, mental health and madness. Roy Bard, a mental health campaigner, gave a rousing presentation during this which you can see here.
