Power to communities: healing through social justice” was the title of the 2014 INTAR conference, which took place in the UK in 24th-26th June, hosted and co-funded by the University of Liverpool. Keynote speakers included sociologists, literary scientists, psychologists and anthropologists who looked at various processes of marginalizing indigenous/first-person perspectives on social injustices and violence and their effect on mental distress. They addressed and documented alternatives; quite a few of the speakers drawing on personal experience. Furthermore, the conference offered about 40 workshops more than half of which focused on projects, initiatives and research led by psychiatric survivors/service users.
