The second and revised version of Mapping and Understanding Exclusion was prepared together with The Tizard Centre, University of Kent and officially launched in January 2018.

Mapping and Understanding Exclusion in Europe is a unique study which looks at the state of mental health services across Europe (35+ countries) and provides exclusive data and testimonies about European mental health systems, ongoing human rights violations and the changes on the horizon.

A unique feature of Mapping and Understanding Exclusion is that is the inclusion of the voices of people who have been forcibly treated. This chapter of the report helps people understand what coercive measures can do to a person, how isolating those experiences can feel and how it can impact upon their recovery.
