So long ISCRI

Well that is just about it for the International School for Communities Rights and Inclusion, ISCRI. Last week I went to its wake: a pleasant enough meal in an empty restaurant in Preston (pictured) enmeshed in the coldest of winter snaps. By contrast with the 60 or so people who gathered for the first ‘away day’, 10 of us gathered at the end.

Gloria and I, and the philosophy of mental health, will move schools to the School of Nursing, to be renamed the School of Health, in January and I am looking forward to developing some of the themes of the philosophy of mental health for a philosophy for nursing. It might be a good place to develop my interest in the tacit underpinnings of clinical judgement.
