Mental health beyond symptoms: Encouraging survivor-led dialogue by focusing on aspects of power, threat

Released in the Journal of British Psychological Society in 2018, 'The Power Threat Meaning Framework' (PTM Framework) by Dr Lucy Johnstone and Dr Mary Boyle talks about the need for a framework that looks at mental health by going beyond symptoms. It attempts to assess people as functioning in response to the threats they feel, the meaning they make of these threats, and how they react to them.
