Scholarship

A lot of research on mental health goes underground, like the 2016 BC grassroots study of how patient rights to self-determination are undermined by provincial legal structures (Carten, 2016) or a Social Work graduate report on a new community mental health clinic in the early 1950s (Boys, 1953).  In this section of Resources, Madness Canada provides topical listings of relevant and often hard to find literature, particularly graduate theses and unpublished papers on diverse aspects of madness, mental health, policy, treatment and activism. We take a broad interpretation of the word “scholarship” and include items that reflect critical insights and understandings drawn from lived experience.

If you have a reference to contribute to this section of the site, please send a complete reference to madness@yorku.ca. If the reference you are submitting is not publicly accessible, please attach a copy of the paper in PDF or Word format.

If scholarship that is not publicly available is posted on Madness Canada, and is to be used in a published form that renders it publicly available, permission to use it must be sought from Madness Canada by submitting this permission form. Classroom, conference or personal use does not require our permission.
