Give service users more jobs in mental health, urges report

The NHS should employ more people who have used mental health services, according to a report published yesterday by the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health and Disability Rights Commission.

It says a more diverse workforce would provide more sensitive services and change the “them and us” culture.

A second report by the Sainsbury Centre, in conjunction with the King’s Fund, found that mental health and learning difficulty services users would like more choice between different treatment, care and support options.
