Abstract

This special issue of the Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services includes three articles that focus on the users of mental health services, not as patients but as providers of peer support services or as collaborators in mental health nursing research. In particular, they highlight the thought and consideration that goes into ensuring that service users and family caregivers are adequately prepared and supported in these relatively new roles.
