Mad studies är en framväxande akademisk disciplin, teori och aktivism om erfarenheter, historia, kulturer och politik som berör galenskap, neurodiversitet, och mental hälsa.[1]

Mad studies utgår från patienters perspektiv, och föddes i överlevnadsrörelser i bland annat Kanada, USA, Storbritannien och Australien.

Metoder inom mad studies inspireras av bland annat antropologi, etnografi, critical race theory och queer studies.[2]

Likheter finns också med kritisk handikappvetenskap och kritisk social teori.[3]

Däribland Nietzsche, Bataille, Blanchot, Deleuze och Guattari.[4]
