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.

  1. I’m a psychologist and met Lucy Johnstone when attending one of her PTM workshops in Australia. She was genuine, insightful, and her challenging of traditional psychology is overdue. While the PTM model was being rolled out, I was completing my own series of books, The Reactive Alien, which are very aligned with PTM. After Lucy’s workshop, I was inspired to synthesise the trilogy into a more accessible volume – Reactivity: An Evolutionary Solution to a Biogeographical Dilemma (available at Amazon.com) – which I believe fills in many of the gaps that PTM is itself being challenged over.
