Critical and Qualitative Approaches to Mental Health Experiences among Vulnerable Groups

About the Series

This series builds on the foundations of interdisciplinary approaches to mental health research laid by Frantz Fanon in the 1950s and later by Arthur Kleinman, among other mental health researchers. It highlights and explicates the uncritical use of universalistic categories of psychiatric disorders in silencing much of the experiences of relationally, culturally, and socio-politically generated distress and culturally shaped healing and rehabilitation. Particularly in the contemporary Global South settings, economic globalization has further aggravated (a) deepening of structurally induced distress and (b) commodification of mental health experiences and care. This book series helps bring an emphatic focus on foregrounding silenced voices of mental health experiences among vulnerable sections towards meaningful rehabilitation and culturally situated healing in the Indian setting using critical and qualitative approaches.
