Creativity and Social Support in Mental Health

“…At the same time, evidence abounds that mental health sufferers are not passive victims, but actively reconstruct their sense of self, partly through and in terms of their illness experiences, but also through renewed forms of identification and affirmation. Moving towards social inclusion, mental health service user groups like Rethink (2010), Sane (2013), NSUN (2011) and Mind (2013), activists such as Hungerian Gabor Gombos (Gombos 2011) and poet Bill McKnight (McKnight 2012), are voicing the experiences, rights and expectations of mental health service users across the globe.”
