This policy paper aims to identify and analyse organisations comprising adults who are users of mental health services across England. No systematic attempt has been made until now to find out the extent and scope of the mental health service user/survivor movement, nor how far it represents the wider constituency of service users and survivors, including those from minority ethnic groups. A postal survey was conducted of all local mental health user groups in England. In all, 318 user groups responded to this survey and 25 were interviewed in depth. National leaders of the movement were also interviewed. Much of the research was carried out by users themselves.
