This thesis details an action research study to develop the role of adult in-patient mental health support workers in an NHS Trust. The research questions sought to identify the contribution that support workers could make to local care provision and identify factors which supported or inhibited a developed role. The relationship between competence and its utility in the workplace was also explored and the development of theory was pursued through the action research cycle.
