Open Dialogue

We have begun a new mental health service which aims to use the support of family and friends to help people recover.

This service allows people to talk about their experiences in a way that previous services have not allowed for and this may be reflected in patient satisfaction being higher than it is for other services.

The study has examined if carers are happy with this service. The findings of this study will be used to decide whether the Open Dialogue model is suitable for using in a NHS mental health trust.

Who could participate?

People aged 18 to 65 receiving treatment from the KMPT Open Dialogue service for a mental ill health.
