Akriti Mehta

Akriti Mehta began her journey towards user-led and survivor research with an academic background in mental health. However, her experiences of mental distress and mental health services as well as her interactions with other users and survivors led her to critically re-examine what ‘madness’ meant. She is currently working on a project (EURIKHA) which explores knowledge production by users, survivors, and persons with psychosocial disabilities. Akriti is interested in user movements in the ‘global south’ and how they influence, and are influenced by, local and global shifts including legal reform, Movement for Global Mental Health and cross-border user/survivor/psychosocial disability networks.
