Abstract: This series of case studies describes how service user and carer involvement has an impact on mental health research. These examples were selected from the Mental Health Research Network’s portfolio to include projects that illustrate the wide range of impacts that service user and carer involvement has on mental health research. Involvement was found to influence all stages of a project, from developing a research question through to implementing the findings. It is hoped these examples will encourage other mental health researchers to involve service users and carers in their work.
