John Gibson

John is a senior service user researcher, and worked on the PARTNERS2 research programme which aimed to develop better ways of supporting people with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, bipolar and other psychosis within GP practices.  He joined the study in 2014 as a LEAP member, then became a service user researcher until its completion in 2021. He subsequently moved onto PARTNERS3, an implementation study across three different NHS Trusts, as well as working as a researcher-in-residence at Somerset NHS Foundation Trust evaluating the community mental health transformation programme. Prior to joining McPin, John took a BA (Hons) in Art History at the University of Manchester and an MA at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London. As someone who lives with a diagnosis of bipolar, John brings over twenty years of experience to a role that emphasises the importance of lived experience of mental health problems in complementing clinical and academic approaches to mental health research. He also works as the Influence and Participation Lead at North Staffs Mind, based in Stoke-on-Trent, and serves as the lived experience panel member for the re-approval of Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) in Staffordshire.
