Abstract [en]

By the adoption of the United Nation Convention on the Rights of Personswith Disabilities, many countries have committed to providing conditionsfor persons with disabilities to actively participate in the community. Thisarticle explores the meaning of active citizenship for persons withpsychosocial disabilities and focuses in particular on the role of thestate. Illustrated with examples from Sweden, the analysis underlines thecomplexity of the relationship between mental health and society bytaking into account several models of disability, different conceptions ofcitizenship and the broader socio-economic context. We suggest thatthe use of a dynamic approach to psychosocial disabilities is appropriatefor dealing with the manifold issue of mental health in welfare states. Inconclusion, we point at important challenges facing the realization offull inclusion and citizenship in contemporary societies.
