Forums Co-Design: A look at what's coming!
Hello Forumites 🤩
We know the Forums are a valuable mental health resource for people living with complex mental health needs; however, we understand from member feedback that there are areas of the Forums that could be strengthened.
We are currently preparing for a co-design project that aims to identify key areas for improvement in the SANE Forums, which may inform a refresh of areas such as the Forums’ design, scope, purpose, approach, guidelines, spaces, support and user experience.
What is co-design?
Co-design means working directly with the people who use a service in order to identify issues and make improvements. This project will directly lead to improvements in the SANE Forums, aligned with the needs and wishes of Forums members. We will start working alongside forum members later this year so watch this space!
How can I be involved?
The first step of the process will be an exploratory phase to understand current issues. We plan to work with Forum members and other key stakeholders in a variety of ways, such as through a community survey and focus groups.
We will let everyone know when we have further information and are ready to get started!
All the best,
