Summary
Whether mental health problems should be viewed as disabilities is a pressing concern, especially since the inclusion of psychosocial disability in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This book explores the challenges of applying disability theory and policy, including the social model of disability, to madness, mental illness and distress. It brings together leading scholars and activists from Europe, North America, Australia and India, to explore the relationship between madness, distress and disability and enhance our collective understanding of the issues
