Perpetuating unkindness

Critical Mental Health Nurses' Network

We are very grateful to Dr Alec Grant, who has contributed the following post. Alec is Reader in Narrative Mental Health in the School of Health Sciences, University of Brighton. He originally trained as a mental health nurse in the 1970s, then as a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist. After teaching and writing in these areas for many years, his academic work is now informed by his narrative research. We find his view that “…institutional psychiatric treatment spaces create possibilities for already damaged bodies to perpetuate unkindness on other bodies” to be one of the most simply provocative statements we have yet published.

Alec made contact with us through this website, and we very much hope that readers will continue to do so. The website is now being viewed by hundreds of separate individuals every week, mostly in the UK, Ireland, the USA, and Australia – and 32 other countries! We feel that this website is beginning to…

How To Permanently Detach From A Narcissist

Free From Toxic


There is a lot of information already on the internet about the “no contact rule” and how to implement it.

No contact is good but going Stover is even better. No that wasn’t a typo. Stover is a term a friend of mine coined that means the relationship is “So Totally OVER” or Stover. Going Stover is a lot like going no contact only on Red Bull, and best of all it protects against dreaded relationship amnesia.

Feeling grateful for my fellow bloggers

Shirleys Heaven

Dear fellow bloggers,

When I was a little girl I dreamed about having pen pals in faraway places. I imagined there was someone living in another country who thought about things the way I did and who had experienced some of the same things I had experienced.  Unfortunately, it never happened. There were too many other things going on in our household to make finding a pen pal a priority.

Fast forward many years later to the age of the internet, and here I am living out my childhood fantasy. I am so grateful to have a place to do what I love the most, writing, and  to connect with others with the same passion.

I have met so many interesting, soulful people from all corners of the world since starting this blog. My blog got off to a painfully slow start, and there were many times I wasn’t…
