  • This Friday…

    Friday 3 July – Annual Celebration & Volunteer Awards

    Guest of Honour: Barbara Taylor, Professor of Humanities, Queen Mary, University of London and author of The Last Asylum (Penguin 2014).

    Barbara Taylor returns to tell us more about her experiences as a user of mental health services in the 1980s. From 1988 to 1989 Barbara was a patient in Friern Hospital in north London. Friern, which closed in 1993, was one of Britain’s oldest ‘lunatic asylums’. Barbara will describe her life there and compare the state of mental health services then and now, concluding with some reflections about the writing of personal memoir.
