Lived Experience Project

Bringing health services users and nurses together – Lived experience project

The RCN is bringing both mental health service users and mental health nurses together to talk about parity of esteem, the concept that mental health and physical health should be viewed as equal and interlinked.

The RCN is holding a workshop on Tuesday 10 September at RCN HQ, London, to help develop a better understanding of how achieving physical health equality works in day to day practice within mental health settings.

In the workshop, supported by Citizens UK, pairs of mental health service users and mental health nurses will share their experiences and perspectives with those in the workshop. The themes identified will be developed into some principles which will be shared more widely.

All participants will remain anonymous unless prior consent in granted.

If you are interested in taken part and have worked with someone who has physical and mental health concerns who would be willing to accompany you, please fill out the form on the right hand side, or email tim.coupland@rcn.org.uk for more information.
