Mad About Zines

Join Helen and Jill from MadZine research for a conversation about radical mental health zines.

MadZines are usually created by people with lived experience of mental ill-health, neurodiversity, psychosocial disability and/or other conditions that have been psychiatrised. They contain challenging insights into madness and distress and have the potential to counter prevailing psychological, psychiatric and medical understandings, diagnoses and treatments, and turn individual struggles into crucial issues for society.

In this event, MadZine will give a brief overview of their work followed by a conversation and Q&A hosted by Lea Cooper.

Bring along your questions, contributions and, of course, MadZines!

Funded by Wellcome, MadZine Research are based at the University of Central Lancashire.
