This report describes how seven people with personal experience of mental illness and psychiatric treatment were involved as researchers on a project that explored how people find ways to better live with persistent or recurring mental health problems. The user researchers carried out face-to-face qualitative interviews with their peers and as far as possible the characteristics of the interviewer were matched with the participants. The report describes how the user researchers were recruited, trained and involved at all the different stages of the project.
