journal contributionposted on 11.02.2015, 16:26 by Amy Jane Barnes
[From introduction] For this edition of Museum Worlds: Advances in Research, we have asked a group of museum practitioners to respond to a thought-provoking article about a Taiwanese project that explored the particular needs of visitors diagnosed with schizophrenia. Allegaert, Besley, Coleborne, Chynoweth, Gale, and Sirik have used Chen et al.’s article as a jumping off point from which to write on the broader topic of mental health provision in museums’ engagement programs from their own international perspectives. The forum was convened by Sandra Dudley and curated by Amy Jane Barnes.
