Individualised funding, social inclusion and the politics of mental health.
Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy, 7
This paper explores how the changing nature of welfare provision can open up, or close down, opportunities for people with mental health needs to organise their own lives and develop their own communities. In particular it focuses on the rise of individualised funding or direct payments, where individuals can receive money instead of services in order to plan, purchase and direct their own support arrangements.
