Records transferred from Karen Clements to the Oral History Centre in 2019.
Scope and content
Collection consists of one oral history project for which Karen Clements was the Primary Investigator. The Community Mental Health Activists/Advocates in Manitoba Oral History archives consists of 18 interviews (from a total of 25 interviews in the overall project) with mental health activists/advocates in Manitoba, conducted between August and October, 2017. All interviews are fully transcribed, and 17 have available audio. The research project was funded through a Brandon University, Faculty Health Studies Research Grant. The definition of activist/advocate for the purposes of recruitment was an individual who identifies (by self or others) as a mental health activist/advocate in Manitoba working for social and system change in the area of mental health. This did not include individuals whose advocacy is limited to advocacy for conventional services for one individual or individuals whose advocacy is limited to advocacy for clients as part of professional clinical work.
Interviews are conducted by various interviewers who were part of the research team:
• Principle Investigator - Karen Clements (Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatric Nursing, Brandon University or DPN BU) – conducting interviews and data analysis.
• Research investigators – Debra Dusome (Assistant Professor, DPN BU); Kristen Hardy PhD (c) York, (instructor at University of Winnipeg, Brandon University, and Teaching Affiliate, Centre for the Support of Teaching, Learning & Technology); Dana Naismith (Assistant Professor, DPN BU); Stan Rossowski (peer support worker, community activist) - conducting interviews and data analysis.
• Transcriptionists – Sara Groleau; Jacqueline Saurette; Kirsten Surovy.
• Copy editor – Sara Groleau
