Critical Mental Health
The field of mental health is far from unified in its basic assumptions and practices. Patients, ex-patients, professionals, and academics have formed various international critical coalitions drawing attention to misinformation and the potential for harm. The critical analysis also draws attention to non-psychiatric approaches to the promotion of human well-being.
The UWSA is providing this platform to allow students to access critical knowledge in the mental health field. Access to both conventional and critical mental health knowledge is necessary so that students can make informed choices as they navigate mental health services. The perspectives presented in both conventional and critical mental health scholarship should not be assumed to be opinions of the UWSA.
