Abstract: The aims of this study were to: develop a method for involving PPI co-researchers in analysing qualitative mental health research data with academic researchers; to test and refine this approach; and to develop recommendations for best practice. The researchers first carried out a literature review, to identify the characteristics of successful approaches that had been used before. They then agreed their own approach and tested it in the RECOLLECT Study of Recovery Colleges. This involved a series of four meetings to first analyse the data and then agree the implications for how Recovery Colleges function. The process involved an extra 80 person-days of time (40 from PPI co-researchers, 40 from academic researchers). The researchers summarise the lessons learned, so that others might use a similar approach in future.
