‘User involvement’ in mental health is generally understood to mean specific activities involving service users, often driven by policy, and often defined by the organisation setting up those activities. Existing (limited) research in this area concludes that there is an ‘underrepresentation’ of service users and survivors from racialised groups in user involvement initiatives, despite continuing overrepresentation of people from many minority ethnic communities within mental health services.
