THE CENTRE FOR COPRODUCTION IN

MENTAL HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

What is coproduction?

Co-production is an approach to research, policy and practice in mental health and social care based on the principle that people who use services have valuable knowledge and expertise.

Why use coproduction?

If you want to know about an issue ask the people it affects and who understand it!  In care environments, people are participating in service delivery and shaping improvements more effectively to meet the end users’ needs.

What can the centre do for you?

We can help you to design and evaluateprojects and improve the services that impact on you.

We can support you to design and implement research that meets your needs and helps you answer your questions,
