For this edition of Museum Worlds: Advances in Research, we have asked a group of museum
practitioners to respond to a thought-provoking article about a Taiwanese project that explored
the particular needs of visitors diagnosed with schizophrenia. Allegaert, Besley, Coleborne,
Chynoweth, Gale, and Sirik have used Chen et al.’s article as a jumping off point from which to
write on the broader topic of mental health provision in museums’ engagement programs from
their own international perspectives. Th e forum was convened by Sandra Dudley and curated
by Amy Jane Barnes.
