  1. Dear Valerie,

    Re request for permission to use your work

    I am a mental health nursing lecturer / professional based at the University of Leeds, UK and am currently writing an academic textbook with Taylor and Francis entitled “The lived experience in mental health”. It is almost completed and due for publication early next year. This book is designed to engage learners and healthcare professionals with personal narratives and to better understand what people are experiencing internally as well as what they are thinking and feeling about living with mental health issues. It is also concerned with people’s experiences of treatment and how they experience what is offered. A further key aspect concerns that of coping and living well with mental health issues. It is my intention to present readers with a balanced view of mental health experience featuring experiences across a spectrum from struggling to coping.

    As part of this work I would love to include a brief quotation from your blog around the experience of dementia. I found this very expressive and thought provoking. I would be very grateful if I could cite this as it would greatly benefit students and other readers including service users. I would also like to take this opportunity of highlighting the fantastic resource offered by your blog which will be clearly identified in this book. If this is at all possible I would be happy to give you further information about this work and clarify which quotation I would like to use.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Many thanks

    Gary Morris
