Abstract

The last two years have seen a small but significant increase in the level of resistance by service users and practitioners to the coalition government’s policy of austerity and neoliberal restructuring of mental health services in England. This article provides an overview and analysis of these developments by examining four recent campaigns that feature alliances between service users, workers, trade unionists and anti-cuts activists. It considers both challenges faced and successes achieved by campaigners.
