Presents a case study of the involvement of service users in the development, delivery and evaluation of a post-graduate programme of interprofessional education in community mental health. It describes how service users have been involved as stakeholders, analyses the nature of the partnerships established and evaluates their outcomes. Partnerships are discussed in terms of culture and values, and role and responsibilities. Concludes there is good evidence of the 'added value' to the programme of these partnerships.
