Message to Intervoice

On the 2nd April an event is taking place in central London which we believe will be of interest to your organisation. 'Madness In the System' brings together historians with mental health policy makers, regulators and monitors, psychotherapists, and mental health service users to talk about mental health in the system, past and present.

You are warmly invited to join in the discussion with us; do encourage others whom you think might be interested. The event is free, and places can be reserved in advance or will be available on the door. Please call the Bishopsgate Institute booking line on 020 7392 9220.

With kind regards,



Katy Pettit

Madness in the System



Bishopsgate Institute

230 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 4QH (just across from Liverpool Street station)

Thursday 2nd April 2009, 7.00pm

Why has consensus on the mental health law been so difficult to reach over the last 25 years? What is the purpose of mental health law today? To what extent does it protect or compromise people's rights? In what ways are historical understandings of mental illness and mental health being redefined today? What has been lost and gained in the replacement of the asylum with hospital and community care?

Speakers include: Peter Bartlett (historian and Professor of Law, Nottingham), Felicity Callard (historian, King's College, London), Peter Campbell (mental health activist), David Crepaz-Keay (Mental Health Foundation), Anthony Deery (Healthcare Commission), Kate Hodgkin (historian, RSHC), Begum Maitra (child and adolescent psychiatrist)

This event is organised by the Raphael Samuel History Centre (University of East London/Birkbeck College/Bishopsgate Institute www.raphael-samuel.org.uk ), in partnership with History & Policy (www.historyandpolicy.org)

Terri,

Look at the comments under the exorcism video.
People are saying that it actually works; and they
are very thankful. Maybe leave it playing low
volume during the night?

This is wild.
