Our members have been busy and over the last few months have seen two papers published in academic journals.
Eddie Nkurunungi was one of the authors of a protocol paper entitled ‘Peer support for frequent users of inpatient mental health care in Uganda: protocol of a quasi-experimental study‘. This paper describes the protocol of a study evaluating the impact of peer support work in reducing readmissions among frequent users of psychiatric inpatient care in Uganda.
Sam Ouma and Rebecca Friel co-wrote a paper entitled ‘Odd arts & sharing stories: the battle for equality
in a UK & Uganda theatre project‘. This reflects on their work together on work using forum theatre to explore issues around mental ill health. They argue that while working through theatre in this intercultural project created
spaces of equality, wider factors limited the extent to which an equal partnership could be built.
We highly recommend reading them if get a chance!
