PurposeCo-production in the context of mental health research has become something of a buzzword to indicate a project where mental health service users and academics are in a research partnership. The notion of partnership where one party has the weight of academic tradition on its side is a contestable one, so in this paper we ‘write to understand’ (Richardson and St. Pierre, 2005) as we examine our experiences of working in a co-produced research project that investigated supported housing services for people with serious mental health problems. Design/methodology/approachWe set out to trouble the notion of co-produced research though a painfully honest account of our project, while at the same time recognising it as an idea whose time has come and suggesting a framework to support its implementation.FindingsCo-production is a useful, albeit challenging, approach to research. Originality/valueThis paper is particularly relevant to researchers who are endeavouring to produce work that challenges the status quo through giving voice to people who are frequently silenced by the research process.
