Service users and survivors are vital partners in mental health
research and teaching. Experiential expertise is more important than ever for creating effective, inclusive mental health support. Co-production is emerging as a powerful way to approach equal
partnership working between practitioners and service users across mental health.
This international seminar launches the Centre for Co-Production in Mental Health at Middlesex University and explores the wide range of issues and agendas for co-production in mental health and academia. The seminar offers a unique opportunity to learn about mental health coproduction in academia from the perspective of leading service user and survivor experts who will discuss coproduction and service user and survivor leadership in research, teaching and course development, and mental health service consultancy.
The keynote speaker is Dr. Sarah Gordon, Research Fellow, Department of Psychological Medicine, University of Otago Wellington, New Zealand. Sarah is an international leader in the field and convenes the annual international Service User Academia Symposium.
Using a blend of talks and facilitated workshops, the aim is to bring together mental health service user and survivor teachers and researchers with their non-user colleagues and students to discuss how co-productive approaches can advance and improve research and practice.
The seminar is limited to 60 places.
40 places are available for other paying delegates at £59 each.
