Abstract:
The issue of service user involvement in mental health research is currently a top policy priority. Participatory Action Research is an approach to research that aims to work alongside oppressed groups with the intention of enacting social change and pursuing empowerment agendas. This study aimed to explore the experiences of a group of young mental health service users who participated in a Participatory Action Research project looking at stigma in mental health. The meaning that the young people attached to their experiences was of principal interest in this study and so qualitative methodologies that privilegec participants' perspectives were employed.
