Nev Jones

Following three and a half years of doctoral work in continental philosophy,  Nev formally migrated to psychology in the fall of 2010.  Currently a doctoral student at DePaul University, Nev has worked closely with Dr Corrigan for the the past three years on projects focused on stigma, peer-led interventions, self-determination/empowerment and service engagement. In addition, Nev has been working on a comprehensive multi-stakeholder evaluation of Illinois' new Medicaid "Integrated Care Program" for individuals with disabilities for the past two years with researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

With various local and national collaborators,  Nev is or has also coordinated qualitative and quantitative projects designed to investigate the experiences of postsecondary students with psychiatric disabilities and to better articulate user-led approaches to research, the phenomenology of psychosis and voice hearing, the implications of biomedicalization/clinicalization, and the experiences & outcomes of individuals participating in first episode intervention programs.  Nev is also a co-founder of Chicago Hearing Voices,  and a member of the Network for Transformative Change in Community Mental Health. All Nev's research and advocacy interests are informed by her personal experiences of psychosis/schizophrenia and the mental health system.
