Madness, Violence, and Power opens up new thinking and engages fresh evidence and standpoints to challenge conventional understandings of the relation between mental health service users/survivors and violence. The collection calls into question prevailing discussions which position such service users/survivors as more likely to enact violence or become victims of violence. Instead, it helps to broaden understandings of violence manifest in their diverse lives.

Drawing on both experiential and research knowledge, Madness, Violence, and Power explores the impacts of systems and institutions that manage "abnormality" and creates space to explore the role of our own communities in perpetuating violence through justice, public policy, and political processes. It invites an interdisciplinary and inclusive conversation that engages all of us, going beyond current biomedical and neuro-scientific preoccupations.
