"We invite papers of broad interest to an international readership of medical humanities scholars and practising clinicians on the topic ‘Science Fiction and the Medical Humanities’."
I thought yes this is something I would enjoy writing about.

Here is a blog post I wrote remembering my dad which includes a eulogy from illustrator Sydney Jordan in the 1987 Titan Books publication 'Counsel for the Defence':
I have spent nearly 50yrs supporting family members in and out of psychiatric settings but it's only since 2008 that I got involved in mental health activism, having been a grassroots community development worker since 1980. I now call myself a psychiatric survivor and plan to stand as an independent candidate at the next Scottish parliamentary elections in 2016, in NE Fife where I live and regionally in Mid-Scotland and Fife. I am doing it so as to have a voice inside parliament rather than just being a spectator.
