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.
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.
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,
To value lived experience and to work with individuals and communities in a respectful and effective manner to find solutions to their research, education and practice needs.
To ensure that coproduction is part of research and teaching across the Department’s activities, including enhanced collaboration with the department’s service user networks and organisational partners.
