Mad Matters book launch

Tuesday, July 9, 2013 - 23:00 to Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - 01:00

Canadian Scholars’ Press is delighted to invite you to the launch of a book hailed as “a critical piece that has been missing from the mental health dialogue.” Mad Matters presents diverse critical voices that convey the lived experiences of the psychiatrized and challenges dominant understandings of “mental illness.” Contributors include Canadian psychiatric survivors, activists, academics, and writers who are involved in the pursuit of social justice for the members of the Mad community.
