Report of the Committee on the Training of Nurses for the Colonies (the 113 Odette Best Rushcliffe Report). The report identified that training of nurses in the United Kingdom and the Dominions for services in colonial territories was comprehensive. It gave a thorough overview of training needs and requirements of nurses, midwives and mental health nurses. While it recommended training of Indigenous nurses, it paid little attention to local complexities that might influence the likelihood of training, noting: At first the only trained nurses were those who were

is based on the psychiatric/medical model of drug dependency that has held sway since the late 1960s. Essentially, for the last 30 years drug users have effectively been dealt with as a sub-set of the population of people with mental health problems.

turned to restrictions on abortion, and argued that ‘legally coercing a woman to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term is not only an abuse of her basic human rights, but may also be extremely damaging from a mental health perspective.’15 The use of the adverb ‘legally’ is interesting for my purposes, because it identifies the perpetrator as the state, through its laws and policies. Restrictions on abortion might also have physical effects, especially when a woman decides to undergo ‘unsafe abortions,’ an expression which includes procedures carried out below the minimum

’ is doubted. This phenomenon has been explored in relation to healthcare conditions that might specifically reduce credibility, such as chronic fatigue and mental health illnesses. 107 Like invisible disability, the difficulty of securing a trusted instrumental diagnosis exacerbates epistemic injustice. More recently, it has been argued that there are distinctive features of disabled life that promote a specific kind of epistemic injustice. 108 As Barnes points out in relation to disbelief, ‘we ought to take disabled people as very good sources of evidence about

Whether as the result of illness, or ‘emotional disturbances’ such as ‘a domestic loss, a financial setback, an affront, real or imagined, to our dignity’, hyperglycaemia could return. Perhaps worse, integrating discourses on the somatic effects of emotional trauma with newer concerns on mental health, McNulty suggested that ‘unless we check it
