264. Exploring the Discourse on Mental Health and Mental Illness

In this Reboot Republic podcast, Rory, talks to Dr Calvin Swords, Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Social Studies Maynooth University, about mental illness and mental health. We ask do we fully understand the significant differences between mental health challenges and mental illness?
Calvin explains the difference between the medical approach and the bio psychosocial models to ‘recovery’, social constructionism, discourse, recovery as a neoliberal concept, the need to explore inequalities and the impact of social issues on individuals, and an alternative approach through social recovery.
