SRN is running a session at the NSUN 2021 AGM at 2-3pm on Wednesday 1st December
After a short introduction to SRN, a presentation by Dina Poursanidou will draw 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. The panel discussion will also consider the role of ambivalence in survivor research.
We plan to use this as the basis for a wider discussion on
· what survivor research is or should be, and
· what survivor research can offer to mental health research and to people with lived experience of mental health challenges.
