Hi Joe, it was really nice meeting with you at the Ecil gig yesterday. Thanks for the resources outlined in this blog, very useful. I agree that the internet is a critical toll that still needs much more access for disabled people/users to have. I also believe it is a tool that can enhance but not replace the need for dialogue & human interaction, otherwise it perpetuates human isolation and provides an excuse for the real world (as apposed to the virtual one)to continue putting & leaving barriers to participation up. Yesterday was a great example of that for me, you and your work have even greater meaning to me when I know you physically, begin a dialogue/share value and beliefs, simply just chat face to face, if that makes sense?
HAAAYEE JOOEWOE. Not the Jimmie Hendrix one, the Frankie Laine one that you're probably too young to remember. Never mind!
Smashing blog and getting to the right places. I like the illustration seems to me to have Blakeish touch about it.
Maybe we can link up - I'm at http://micoxpplog.blogspot.com (the PPLOG acronym stands for Patient and Public Log).
Hi Joe, Colin et al
Thanks for these resources Joe. I think, additionally, as a service user, it is a good idea to collect the titles of all publications which can be useful. I am hugely indebted to Joanna Moncrieff's book
The Myth of the Chemical Cure
[http://www.amazon.co.uk/Myth-Chemical-Cure-Psychiatric-Treatment/dp/0230574327/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1] for helping to understand just how toxic the psychiatry on offer can be and how we can seek alternatives. There are other books and it is good to check out the Critical Psychiatry website (http://www.critpsynet.freeuk.com/antipsychiatry.htm)to hook into related issues.
