Mind, state and society 1960-2010: Half a century of UK psychiatry and mental health services

This event will take a detailed look at the history of mental health and psychiatry in British society between the years of 1960-2010, a hugely interesting and distinct period in the history of Britain.

This time period is characterised by increasing dominance of ideologies of social liberalism, free markets and practices of economic neoliberalism and globalisation - it also coincides with de-institutionalisation and community care in mental health. 

The meeting will focus on what happened to public mental health services during this time. Public experiences of mental health issues will be examined, along with those who were affected - individuals, family, other informal carers, formal carers and mental health professionals within the broader social context.
