Case Studies | Published: 17 Dec 2015

A 2015 case study from the Institute of Health and Society, Newcastle University, who worked with six service users (experts by experience) from a mental health charity (Moving Forward Service Newcastle), to co-produce an educational film about the value of shared decision-making to support recovery from mental health problems.

This submission demonstrates co-production involving service users and professional researchers, shared decision-making as a valuable approach for improving service user experience and quality of care, and co-production activity as a therapeutic intervention.
