The International Mad Studies Journal provides a dedicated space for thinking, critiquing, exchanging ideas and debating a broad range of topics relevant to Mad Studies.  The International Journal of Mad Studies values creativity and vision, and we strive to do things differently to more traditional journals.  Our aim is to create a community of people with lived experience and those without who have a common interest in advancing our knowledge, understanding and respect for Mad Studies.
