(p.153) Eleven Alternative futures for service user involvement in research
Mental health service users in research

Potential futures for service user researchers and co-researchers are critically examined here. In order to do this the chapter first critiques the notion of a service user and identifies a typology of involvement before we then begin to tease out differing types of service user involvement in research as; direct, indirect or as an alternative research team member. Each of these types has their own strengths and weaknesses. Following this, how these types suggest potential alternative futures for service users in health and social care research is considered, acknowledging that the involvement can be both meaningful and meaningless.
