This book summarizes the overall purpose of CURA (Community-University Research Alliance Poverty): Poverty, Mental Health, and Social Inclusion which is to better understand the inter-relationships between poverty and social inclusion for psychiatric survivors. Social inclusion involves the full participation of marginalized groups in the social and economic benefits of society; however, it is difficult to achieve for citizens with the “double jeopardy” of poverty and psychiatric disorder. With input from over 35 community partners and people with lived experience, the hope is to engender community- based initiatives to counteract poverty and promote social inclusion.
