Development of a model of working for mental health that embraces the EU Knowledge Triangle
Over the course of the STRENCO Project we explored the development of a model of working for mental health that embraces the EU Knowledge Triangle. As part of the ways of working in mental health, we view the involvement of service users, carers and family members, as integral to the process that need to be integrated into the model. To this end the project worked on the development of a model that encompasses the perspectives of service users, family members and carers, alongside professionals, services and academies. The model has been developed in a co-produced way using a Logic Model Process, with the inclusion of all service users, family members, students, clinicians and academics from the partner institutions.
The STRENCO Logic Model
The STRENCO Logic Model, is a Tripartite Model for working in mental health in a more co-produced way. It provides a snapshot of the feasibility of working in more co-produced ways to achieve greater inclusiveness of service users, family members, carers,experts by experience, clinicians, academics and students in relation to decision making processes, care, policy and research, which is aspired for mental health. – Click below to read the background evidence for the STRENCO Logic Model.
The STRENCO Logic Model highlights how context, process and outcomes are intertwined withinco-production. The process of working in a co-produced manner can be visualised as a jigsaw with the key components (pieces) including context, process and outcomes. The process mechanism should be considered as key factors that influence co-production. – Click the preview to see the visualisation of the STRENCO Logic model.
