Myself, an OMH volunteer and some steering group members were in West Lothian on Friday for our Christmas meeting. Thankyou to everyone at MHAP (Mental Health Advocacy Project) for making us so welcome and putting on such a fine spread. It was great to get people together who had not met before, to talk about the project and about mad peoples' history.
Check out the comments for the "What were you doing in 1984?" post - Andrew Roberts from the Survivors History Group in London has left an interesting comment about the work he was doing with the Hackney Mental Patients Union in 1984.
We are still looking for two more people for our Oral History training in January. Please give me a phone if you fancy coming along.
