Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This report presents findings of a stakeholder consultation. The consultation gathered views on what should be the priorities for mental health related research sponsored by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The stakeholders were people with lived experience of mental health challenges and/or experience of supporting others with such challenges (either in a paid or voluntary working role, or as a friend/family member). The report was commissioned by the ESRC to complement an expert reference group report (December 2015) and other consultations. The not-for-profit Boingboing conducted the ‘Have Your Say' consultation in collaboration with the University of Brighton. We drew on our experience of co-production in research and practice development with diverse and often marginalised groups, including people with lived experiences of mental health challenges. The events were organised and run by people with lived experience of mental health challenges and of supporting people with mental health issues. A copy of this report will be sent to each participant who either attended a consultation event or who filled in an online survey and chose not be anonymous.
