    MITUK's mission is to serve as a catalyst for fundamentally re-thinking theory and practice in the field of mental health in the UK, and promoting positive change. We believe that the current diagnostically-based paradigm of care has comprehensively failed, and that the future lies in non-medical alternatives which explicitly acknowledge the causal role of social and relational conflicts, abuses, adversities and injustices. We campaign for a change in the professional and public discourse about emotional distress and unusual experiences; for support, both within and beyond services, which meets people’s real needs; and for social policy which addresses the causes of distress at its roots. MITUK will strive to do this in several ways:

    ✺ By providing summaries of research articles that regularly go unnoticed in the general media because they challenge conventional wisdom.

    ✺ By hosting a community of writers with diverse experiences and backgrounds who share our belief that the current paradigm of mental health care has failed and needs to be rethought.

    ✺ By providing a forum for readers to add their thoughts and opinions to this discussion.

    ✺ By reporting in-depth pieces that deconstruct the conventional ‘evidence base’ for psychiatric drugs and other aspects of current mental health care and tell of alternatives to conventional interventions.

    ✺ By providing links to a range of websites, podcasts and blogs that also offer ideas, information, projects and resources beyond the current paradigm

    We need your help to keep it going!

    With thanks,

    MITUK team.

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
