The next webinar in the CMHDARN webinar series will explore co-production; what it means, how to engage with co-production in research in a meaningful way and how to get started.
A bit about the presenters:
Brett Bellingham and Holly Kemp are consumer researchers at the University of Sydney who have lived experience expertise, as well as expertise in peer support work, mad studies and consumer/survivor/ex-patient explanatory frameworks. Jo River is an academic at the University of Sydney and a social scientist specialising in mental health. Jo brings expertise in social theory and research methodologies to the collaboration.
Brett, Holly and Jo have been working together on various co-production projects since 2017, and recently they co-founded 'The Coproduction Collective' with colleagues from the University of Technology. The Collective brings together consumer researchers and 'conventional' or non-lived experience researchers to do co-production work exploring experiences of mental distress and extreme states, drug and alcohol use, as well as models of care and practices to transform health services.
The webinar will be interactive, with participants able to ask questions throughout.
