Avoidable harm in mental health social care

This is a user-led study exploring the question: How do mental health service users in England conceptualise and experience social and psychological ‘avoidable harm’ in social care, and what are their recommendations for its minimisation in practice?

The research team are working with service users in focus groups and using a survey, as well as with practitioners, to produce a model of avoidable harm and its minimisation. Service user and practitioner collaborators will work with the research team and a service user media company to produce a digital online learning resource to promote research impact in social care practice, training, and education.
