China Mills gives a provocative insight for us to consider how drugs might shape our identity. What do you think? Listen to the provocation and express your thoughts…. #cmxd. Come down to Contact for the identity Remixed workshop and hear China live at Contact, 5.30pm tomorrow.
China Mills is a PhD student at the Education and Social Research Institute, at Manchester Metropolitan University. China researches alongside survivor and user-led organisations within mental health and disability, in the UK and in India. She is particularly interested in the representation of people with mental health problems within pharmaceutical advertising, and in the role of the pharmaceutical industry in regulating and medicalising personhood; setting limits on who counts as a person and what counts as a life. She is currently doing some work around the production and clinical trialling of psychiatricdrugs in India, and has previously done research exploring alternative approaches to working with children and adults who hear voices.
