Drop the Disorder poetry evenings showcase poems that challenge the dominant narrative in ‘mental health’ of diagnosis & disorder!

‘A poet’s work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world and stop it from going to sleep.’ — Salman Rushdie

‘Poetry is the lifeblood of rebellion, revolution, and the raising of consciousness.’ — Alice Walker

 

This drop the disorder poetry evening is brought to you by A Disorder 4 Everyone and supported by Onlinevents.

Poetry and spoken word have played a major part in the A Disorder for Everyone events since the first one in October 2016. This will be our 4th online poetry event. We hope evening will connect us in friendship and solidarity.

This is a donation only event with a minimum fee of £1 to maximise accessibility. Please make a donation based on what you can afford.

Hope to see you there,

Jo Watson, Lucy Johnstone & John Wilson

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.
