Radio La Colifata: radio broadcast from inside a mental hospital

"More than 20 years ago, a psychology student doing his training at one of Argentina's oldest psychiatric wards kept being asked by his family and friends what it was like to work in there. So he came up with an idea: to let the patients explain in their own words.

The first radio station to broadcast from inside a mental hospital was born. Radio La Colifata - slang for loon, crazy person, has been on air from Hospital Jose Borda in Buenos Aires every Saturday afternoon for 23 years - to confront the stigma around mental illness, breaking through the wall in AM, FM and now online."

Australian anti-discrimination campaign: Stop. Think. Respect.

"beyondblue's new national anti–discrimination campaign highlights the impact of racism on the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Research shows that subtle or 'casual' racism can be just as harmful as more overt forms. Imagine being judged in a job interview by the colour of your skin, rather than the strength of your CV. How would you feel if you were watched in a shop or treated differently on public transport?

Why should anyone be made to feel like crap, just for being who they are?

Stop. Think. Respect. encourages everyone in Australia to check their behaviour. Stop the discrimination, think about how your comments or actions could cause real distress and harm, and respect people who are different from you."

Empowering Children as Participants in Designing Resilience Strengthening Online Tools

"As young people take up digital media to gather information, explore ideas, and support their social interaction, educators are harnessing its potential for health promotion. In the field of mental health, a range of interactive games, quizzes and online activities has been developed. Visual and interaction design plays a vital role in determining their appeal, levels of engagement and so, ultimately, their efficacy. Just as the content of such tools is typically seen as the domain of health education experts, the interface and interaction design is usually developed in collaborating with IT specialists, with user participation limited to trials of the prototypes. In this Visualising Resilience Project, an alternative approach has been taken. A Participatory Design methodology has been used to engage children in designing interactive tools to promote resilience. As co–designers, children have been involved in defining resilience, and co–determining the goals and interactivity of the tools. It is our long–term objective to investigate whether this user–centered approach influences the uptake, engagement and efficacy of the tools, but as the project has unfolded, we have identified a concomitant advantage of the Participatory Design process. Children have reported a greater understanding of, and capacity for, resilience as a result of participating in the design workshops. This paper reports on the Participatory Design process as a case study. It shows that children as participant designers not only contribute effectively to the design process, but that participation in itself can achieve significant benefits for the young designers."
