For each problem it first provides a case study and then describes how to find out more about a child with this problem. It suggests what can be done to help the child and their family. It also examines the mental health aspects of childhood maltreatment and exposure to natural or man-made disasters.

This article explores the experience of using drama to demystify and destigmatise mental illness. Drama can be an effective way of increasing mental health awareness. It can also be an enjoyable way of getting across the message that even those who lack mental wellbeing have dreams and can achieve them. The article provides a descriptive account of a drama project from the perspectives of participants and the author. The innovative use of drama to promote mental wellbeing, the diverse partnerships that underpinned the production, and the positive impact on performers and audience are outlined. Key to success was good joint working between a range of health, social care and community agencies, as well as local service users. Financial resources for putting on the production provided by the local mental health trust were also crucial.

An uneasy dwelling: the story of the Philadelphia Association community houses

Author:

The Philadelphia Association has been providing places of asylum for over 40 years. Hundreds of men and women, whether formally designated ‘mentally ill’, or experiencing serious emotional distress, have entered a PA community house and been allowed to “go through whatever they have to go through”, in their own time and in their own way, free from the interventions of psychiatry or family. Despite the longevity and the radically different nature of the project, little has been written about the work. This book is an attempt to correct that. It is in part a history of the houses but also an account of how the houses work today and an exploration of their underpinning ethos. The most famous of the houses was the first, Kingsley Hall, which opened in 1965 and which has come to have an almost iconic status in the world of what has come to be called critical psychiatry. More than 15 houses have been run under PA auspices. In the past the PA was most closely identified with one of its founders, the highly public figure RD Laing. This book is an attempt to explain more about the PA and reveal misperceptions.
