CAPS Independent Advocacy hosts the Oor Mad History project. It aims to reclaim, celebrate, and promote the history of collective advocacy and ‘mad activism’ by people with mental health issues living in Edinburgh and Lothian. The group of people who work on the project have now published their second book, ‘Oor Mad History: Ten Years On’. In this new book, we share the memories and experiences of people who have been involved in the local collective advocacy and activism movement in the last ten years.
