  • Our focus is primarily on Asia and the work of persons with psycho-social disabilities and their networks in promoting critical thinking and social change.
  • We seek to publish philosophies, theories, research evidence and practice that focus on changing communities to make inclusion a reality as well as challenge the dominance of western psychiatry/psychology in promoting plural understandings of distress, disability, wellness and healing.
  • We will showcase innovations from Asian countries that promote community inclusion, self-determination and human rights and challenge coercive, top-down approaches.
  • Mad in Asia Pacific will serve as a hub for trans-cultural knowledge exchange, learning and collaboration.
  • We will not publish materials that uncritically perpetuate the dominance of the bio-medical model.
