How do people construct their identity when they are both a 'mental health professional' and a 'mental health service user'?
Richards, J. 2013. How do people construct their identity when they are both a 'mental health professional' and a 'mental health service user'? PhD Thesis Canterbury Christ Church University Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology
Literature suggests that there are a growing number of ‘mental health professionals’ speaking out about their own experiences of using mental health services. Research suggests that these professionals face dilemmas when constructing their identity because they are drawing on two identities that are viewed as fundamentally different, i.e. ‘mental health professionals’ as powerful and ‘mental health service users’ as powerless.
