The Critical Psychiatry Network is a network primarily for psychiatrist, psychiatric trainees and medical students with an interest in psychiatry. We work mainly though the website and the mailing list. If you are sympathetic to the ideals of CPN and wish to join the network then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage sympathetic non psychiatrists to join the Hearing Voices Network at http://www.hearing-voices.org/. By registering on the website you can also access our articles and forum.
On the site you will find papers and documents written by CPN in response to consultation documents from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence in England (NICE). You will also find responses to documents from other organisations, including the British Government’s consultation process that lead to the 2008 amendment to the 1983 Mental Health Act.
There is also an extensive list of members’ publications. You can download many of these from our site, but some articles are links to other sites.There are also sections for news, a forum for discussion, and news of events that may be of interest.
We also strongly recommend two sister sites. Duncan Double’s Critical Psychiatry Blog is at http://criticalpsychiatry.blogspot.com/
The International Critical Psychiatry Network (ICPN) can be found at http://www.criticalpsychiatry.net/ where you’ll find a really useful blog archive.
