Heads of Patient Experience Conference: Storytelling – using patient, carer and staff stories to improve outcomes and experiences of care.

The Spectrum Centre at Lancaster University has explored the idea of a living library as a way to share mental health experiences. In a living library, people, or ‘living books’ and are trained and supported to share their stories in one-to-one conversations with ‘readers’.

Over the course of a 12-month project, researchers, lived experiences experts, and clinicians took part in 10 workshops to co-design an implementation guide for a Library of Lived Experience for Mental Health.
