Alison Faulkner

I am a mental health service user, and work as a freelance researcher, writer and trainer. I have worked in the mental health field for over 20 years and for most of the national mental health charities.

Much of my work has involved training and supporting service users to become involved in research and I have a particular interest in user-controlled research.

I have written and presented on public involvement in research as well as on various aspects of mental health policy, service delivery and personal experience.
