Celebrating 10 years of McPin!
Produced to celebrate McPin’s 10th anniversary, the 10 for 10 resources showcase our learning and reflections from working across a wide range of projects.
They are not ‘how to’ guides but instead present our thinking and learning to date. We are continuing to develop our expertise in coproduction, public involvement in research, peer research and supporting lived experience roles in the workplace.
By sharing how we approach these issues and what we have learnt over the decade we hope the resources spark passionate conversations amongst the wider mental health research community, and beyond.
These ten resources will explore how to use lived experience in the workplace; reflect on our public involvement and peer research; look at our ongoing journey towards antiracism; offer guidance on neurodivergent-inclusive meetings and more.
