This paper is drawn from a wider project focusing on the stories of psychiatric\ud patients elicited from collective case studies. The stories are biographically\ud constructed from the patients’ narratives of their experience of the ‘revolving\ud door’ phenomenon. This is a phrase often used in psychiatric discourse to refer\ud to multiple readmissions to psychiatric hospital. Given that the quest for\ud meaning in the social world is firmly embedded within its various institutional\ud structures (and that these structures influence the resulting stories), there is a\ud conceptual concern regarding the potential identities embodied in each patient\ud and how they are interpreted and accommodated by the social environment
