25 Why Become Involved?

27 It has helped me regain my sense of purpose in life and a lot of my dignity following my breakdown. To have something important to get up for in the morning became my motivation to live and carry on. I hate to think where I might otherwise have been. Being involved with MCT has changed my life. It has given me the opportunity to try and help the way service users are treated and to help change bad practices. Made me feel useful again. As if I have the ability to think and contribute. Improved self-esteem and confidence. Feeling valued which resulted in improved self-respect and respect from family and friends. Being able to 'treat' family with payment, as felt they’d earned it! My input is true, honest and if my experience can help others not do the pain I went through over the past 27 years, then so be it. I just want to be me. Helped me to meet other carers whose sons/daughters have been sectioned and been in hospital for long periods. Meetings have acted as a support group and friendships have formed. I enjoy working with fellow service users, with carers and with Mersey Care staff. I really feel listened to. Being involved with Mersey Care has transformed my life, from being in a position where I thought I had no place in life to a position of respect and responsibility.

28 Mental Health and Recovery

29 When I was at my most ill, I had no confidence, sense of purpose or motivation. Now I am out and about and involved in all sorts of meaningful activities and it is like I have a new lease of life! The day I met Lindsey changed the course of my life forever and I shall always be grateful for this. Thank you. I always thought I was a bit thick. I never went to school on a regular basis. Mersey Care has given me back my self worth and confidence. I know I will always have a mental illness but at least now I have a voice and I am valued. Overcame agoraphobia by being involved and having to face people. Made me push myself when due to be on a pre-arranged interview panel (recruitment and selection). I am involved in groups and activities I probably would not have been involved in. Apart from certain physical activities, I don't think I have a limit. Getting involved with other service users and carers and staff has allowed me to use skills I have. Involvement with Mersey Care has given me a sense of purpose, greater confidence and most importantly, the opportunity to mix with others and feel valued and respected as an equal. For many years I thought of myself as a non-person, existing not living. On being involved with Mersey Care I have found I have something to offer. Life, once more, has purpose.

32 Involved In Care

33 Changes Seen I feel service users and carer’s have largely earned the respect of Trust managers and they are much more accepted as part and parcel of the way things are done in Mersey Care. I think that the fact that Mersey Care involves service users and carer’s has made a big difference especially in treatment on the wards and around the Trust. We are now seen as people. Every month there's something new to get involved in. If you wish! Less shortlisting this year. Only had one. The other one got cancelled. Improved attitudes of staff to service users, i.e. seen as individuals. Positive effects of Reader in Residence and Everton Projects. Seeing how much effort and care that staff put into their work. I feel a bit more confident with others and have also, at all the events, been made to feel welcome (especially by the Director, Ms Lindsey Dyer - a lovely and competent woman). More emphasis on human rights.

36 Changes To Attitude Working with service users and carers has had such a positive change in my attitude. Would like to think I was always caring/compassionate but in this role it has heightened my sensitivity to the needs of others and inspired me to constantly assess my values and opinions. I hope that I always appreciated the qualities and potential contribution of people using services, but this continues to be reinforced by the capabilities and generosity that is shown by people I work with in Mersey Care. Made me focus on what the job is all about. Try to involve service users from older people’s services - not on database but have a big group of people with dementia and carers who have been involved in service redesign in Liverpool CBU. Increases my confidence in MCT as a whole due to the importance of service user/carer involvement. Become much more explicit that involvement is a human rights issue. It provides both a grounding and focus as to the purpose of the service we provide, and enables challenge and constructive discussion to occur which might not ordinarily flourish. Makes the service focus at all times on what's at the heart of our service - the people.

37 Changes To Practice I am more empathic as a person. I think I have perhaps moved away from a slightly 'protective' approach to people, which risked patronising and underestimating them. Service users now play an integral role in core business discussion, especially with any changes, and involvement on a day to day basis ensures that decisions are better informed. Made me think a lot more about how I communicate with service users. It has resulted in me thinking what additional information I can provide for hospital inpatients during their stay. More clearly linking involvement of service users/carers to a human right based approach to healthcare. There is no doubt that the comments and actions of service users and carers are currently helping shape future working practices.

38 Changes Seen It is now expected that there will be service user and carer involvement - whereas before it was not initially on the table. I feel now that it's not looked at as 'something to remember' but it's now always on the agenda with everything else. Increased feelings of empowerment and confidence in service users. This leads to increased job satisfaction for staff involved. I believe it really helps address staffs' negative attitudes. Allows service users to be seen in a more positive light and builds their confidence. Bravo. I have seen service users giving their own presentations at conferences, meetings and events(instead of professionals speaking for them). Improved reception area. Improved service user information. I think it has done a lot to promote the concept of recovery when staff see living examples in front of them. Service user’s expression of empowerment, having meaningful roles. Reduced anxiety amongst staff about meaningfully engaging service users in Trust business. More positive attitude amongst staff re involvement. Having service user involvement within the development of the clinical business unit has ensured the direction of the CBU is measured, and balances the strategic direction to meet service user needs along with the challenge of value for money.

39 Conclusions Involving Service Users and Carers improves care delivery. Culture change takes time. Benefits are worth the investment
