Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Critical Psychiatry Network is a group of British psychiatrists who first met in Bradford, England in January 1999. Most people associated with the group are practicing consultant psychiatrists in the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS). A number of non-consultant grade and trainee psychiatrists are also involved with the network. The first meeting came about in response to proposals by the British government to amend the 1983 Mental Health Act (MHA). There was concern within and without the profession about the implications of the proposed changes for human rights and the civil liberties of people who use mental health services. Since its first meeting, the group has met twice a year - in London in March, and in the North of England (usually Sheffield) in September. Meetings are open to any psychiatrist interested in finding out more or getting involved. The network is primarily intended for psychiatrists, and is not open to other groups. It works closely with service users/survivors, carers, and other professional groups in areas of common concern. CPN is also considering international links with like-minded psychiatrists in other countries.show more
