Reimagining Crisis Support: Matrix, Roadmap and Policy aims to shift the conversation about personal crisis from one based in mental health discourse to one based in a social model of disability and human rights.
The book's primary thesis is that crisis support can be reimagined as support for decision-making
and maintaining an independent life in the community - as provided for under Articles 12 and 19 of
the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Community-based, non-discriminatory
conflict resolution and violence prevention are complementary to crisis support but are distinct as
they involve more than one person's needs and interests at the same time.
