Co-production in mental health A call for practice examples

The National Development Team for Inclusion  (NDTi) have been funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation to demonstrably increase understanding of co-production in mental health.

One of the key aims of the work is develop a practical, evidence-based resource on how co-production can be understood and implemented in mental health.

NDTI are would love to hear about examples of co-production which have worked, but also those that have not worked, from within and outside statutory or mainstream mental health services, including:

• From people who identify as having a mental health problem or as service users/survivors

• User-led organisations (ULOs)

• Non-user led mental health campaigning organisations

• Local authority or NHS commissioners (including Clinical Commissioning Groups)

• NHS Trusts

• Local authorities

• Voluntary and community sector mental health providers

• Specialist voluntary and community sector groups/organisations (such as those supporting BAME or LGB & T people)
