Commissioned as part of a scoping programme on rights, responsibilities, risk and regulation in adult social care, this paper looks at service users' perspectives on issues concerning their right to decide about the risks they wish to take in their lives and on their right to be protected from risks. It is based on existing literature presenting the views or experiences of service users or disabled people and discussions with service users and disabled people from a range of different backgrounds and experiences. It presents the views of service users on risk, the balance between risk and benefits, rights, responsibility, and the role of regulation. It identifies additional risks and fears to those commonly identified by professionals and policy makers and notes that perceptions of risk and rights are significantly different for mental health service users.

This article looks at a project to develop an accessible manual on ethical practice for researchers, trainers and interviewers working from the perspective of mental health service users and survivors. Interview and focus groups, a literature review and questionnaires distributed to a sample of survivor researchers were used in the study. This article summarises some of the main themes that arose from the research, and are covered in the guidelines.

This manual offers guidance on some of the difficult and important issues to consider prior to a research project or research training programme. Aimed at mental health service users and survivor researchers, trainers and interviewers, it looks at ‘survivor-controlled’ research, though many of its guidelines are relevant to user involvement in research more generally. Drawing on the experience of survivors and service users it considers key issues such as informed consent and confidentiality with particular reference to mental health settings. It also addresses less commonly discussed issues, such as feedback to participants, dissemination and a commitment to change based on research findings.
