Would you like to study Mad People’s History?

Caps Advocacy LogoCAPS Oor Mad History are forming a group of up to 10 people with lived experience of mental health issues to follow the online course, Mad People’s History, offered by Ryerson University, Toronto. It’s a fantastic course, which places lived experience at the centre of the curriculum.

The group will meet from January – April 2013 to look at the course materials and discuss issues raised. We’ll also be looking to use the Canadian course as inspiration to develop a Scottish course delivered at a Lothian university.

If you have lived experience of mental health issues and would like to find out more please get in touch, or come along to our information session:

When: Thursday 29 November 2012, 6pm – 7pm

Where: CAPS (The Consultation and Advocacy Promotion Service) office, 5 Cadzow Place, Edinburgh, EH7 5SN.

Please tell us you’re coming by contacting Kirsten at CAPS on 0131 538 7177 or email
