Trust is fundamental to everyday interactions and the functioning of society. How trust develops, or fails to develop, within contexts of severe mental illness is a pertinent topic for social scientists and healthcare professionals, not simply because it is an under-researched area but because heightened uncertainty and amplified vulnerability amidst psychosis represent a crucible of the conditions where trust becomes relevant.
Grounded in research within this crucible, this book explores a number of questions which are central to contemporary theoretical debates around the nature of trust. The authors link these abstract concerns to empirical analysis, involving interviews with service-users, practitioners and managers. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the concept of trust, including social science researchers and students, as well as practitioners, managers and policy makers working with vulnerable people.

Trust (and its corollary mistrust) lies at the heart of contemporary debates regarding governance and democracy. There is an extensive literature focused on conceptualising trust, and more specifically political trust, and exploring the potential consequences of the perceived decline or erosion in the latter for democracy ( Cook 2001 ; Rothstein and Uslaner 2005 ; Torcal and Montero 2006 ; van Deth et al 2007 ). Problems of democratic deficit, of the misfit between politics and policy, of political corruption apparently undermine trust in politicians and
Introduction In recent decades, there has been growing scholarly interest in the various aspects of public trust in government and its possible impact on society and effective governance ( Cook et al, 2005 ; Hardin, 2006 ; Keele, 2007 ; Cleary and Stokes, 2009 ; Bouckaert, 2012 ; Vigoda-Gadot and Mizrahi, 2014 ; Giordano and Lindström, 2016 ; Sønderskov and Dinesen, 2016) .

I am going to start with the mistrust between different communities and races, but I also want to look at the mistrust between adults and young people, which was flagged up by many who responded to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s (JRF) social evils consultation.

comes to matters of trust, it is belief that is important. The belief that Mr Cummings broke the lockdown rules then institutes the demand for some sanction. However, second, the government refused to sanction Mr Cummings, rather choosing to justify his actions. The justification was that Mr Cummings’ ‘exceptional problems with childcare’ fell under the ‘very limited’ exceptions to the directive to ‘Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives’ and so legitimised his trip to Durham. 1 This paper also takes as its starting point two further facts. Third, that levels of
