A recording of our session at the NSUN 2021 AGM is now available. The session was entitled Survivor Researchers: What do we bring?
After a short introduction to SRN, Dina Poursanidou delivered a presentation drawing on mental health service user interview accounts of involuntary hospitalisation (‘sectioning’) in England to discuss the critical importance of listening to ambivalent (contradictory) service user and survivor voices when it comes to psychiatric detention and the role of ambivalence in survivor research.
The discussion considered what survivor research can offer to mental health research and to people with lived experience of mental health challenges.
