Quick Overview

This journal describes the work of a group of people centred around the Dulwich Centre in Adelaide who were involved in creating an alternative Community Mental Health Project in an attempt to meet more adequately the needs of people with psychiatric diagnoses who are considered 'chronically' and mentally ill. Within the project, people who experience 'voices and visions' (often referred to as the auditory and visual hallucinations of schizophrenia) work together with community support workers to expose the tactics and effects of these 'voices and visions'; to honour and build upon individuals' knowledges and skills; to create ever-widening communities of reflection and support; and to question collaboratively the dominant ways of understanding and living in this culture.
