This piece of work took place when I was Programme Manager for Empowerment & Later Life at the Mental health Foundation . It was a co-produced piece of peer research, intense but so well supported project. I combined my skills in facilitation, co-production and creativity.
As well as being part of the project design and doing some interviews with people, I made drawings as a way to reflect on the themes of the project, visual alterations. These are being used to facilitate discussions in the dissemination of the project and with staff working in this area.
