We are pleased to announce the publication this week of a special issue of Critical and Radical Social Work journal on the theme of Psychopolitics in the Twenty First Century, which was inspired by the conference of the same name at Liverpool Hope University in June 2015.
The special issue features articles or reviews from leading figures in the field including Professors Peter Beresford, Ann Davis, David Pilgrim and Diana Rose amongst others. The papers explore a range of themes such as politics, social theory and social movements in mental health, Mad Studies, anti-psychiatry, critical perspectives on mental health policy and strategies of resistance to welfare reform. There are also articles from activist and consciousness raising groups involved in mental health campaigning from Critical Voices Network Ireland and reVision to Psychologists Against Austerity.
The full contents list and links to papers are available here:
