Mental Health and Learning Disabilities: Heritage and Stigma


Principal Investigator: Dr Rob Ellis (University of Huddersfield)
Co-investigators: Dr Robert Ellis (University of Huddersfield); Dr Rob Light (University of Huddersfield)
Duration: From 2013 to 2014

The Heritage and Stigma project is based at the University of Huddersfield and is designed to link academic understanding of the histories of mental ill health and learning disability with areas of current practice. Taking the long-term development of ‘care’ as its starting point, Heritage and Stigma allows for an inclusive, co-productive model of design in the creation of public histories. Partners include archives, museums, charities and mental health trusts.
