Experience of Care | Co-Production at its Best

How does successful co-production really take place?

The Mental Health Ambassador Programme was launched in 2016 and has enabled patients and carers with direct experience of mental health services, to work alongside commissioners from seven CCGs and three councils, in order to co-produce the first pan-Essex mental health and wellbeing strategy.

Our Co-production at its best film showcases the success of this project; demonstrating how people’s lived experience can be used to influence or shape services, and highlighting the benefits of working together for both professionals and patients.
