Brief Description of Work: Formed in 2012, our co-production group brings together mental health service users, carers, practitioners and academics with the aim of enhancing understanding and improving services through work in values-based practice. We initially worked on matters relating to assessment in mental health building on the 3 Keys publication. Building on this we are now expanding our range of activities to include training, lecturing and other training events, authoring journal articles and collaborating on research and book chapters; all make use of the working links formed within the initially disparate group and the joint expertise gained in co-production.
