    LAMP 30 years: The History of Leicester's Longest Running Mental Health Charity by Emma Brine.

    Thirty years ago, Leicestershire Action for Mental Health Project (Lamp) began operations. Lamp’s aims were to support those living with mental health conditions in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, and to challenge the stigma that surrounds it. Lamp has been a leading provider in mental health advocacy in the area, however, this is only part of what they have achieved. Raising awareness, challenging stigma, creating links with service providers so that service users could have a voice in their care, these are just a few things in the long list of Lamp’s accomplishments in the past thirty years. This book looks in detail at these achievements, including interviews, personal anecdotes and research from Lamp’s own archive.
