Click on the title link above for this post by Monica, whose site holds a great richness of resources for anyone seeking healing or seeking alternatives to the psychiatric model perspectives. This post has many useful links. Anyone with any engagement with what gets categorised as ‘mental health’ (or as we would see it, natural responses to difficult human experience) would gain from a few hours immersion in these resources. We do a lot of trauma work with people at this service (and we also engage in our own work with our own trauma, because none of us come through unscathed). The writer resonates strongly with what she says here and elsewhere about the nature and cultural/generational context of that work.
Thank you, Monica.
