Chris Munt

Expert by Experience

Chris Munt, MBE and Public Governor: Chris describes himself as having a lived experience of mental illness that I can trace back to early childhood. Having suffered with hallucinations and anxiety. Despite this he has built a successful career in social work, project management, lecturing and training, as well as service user involvement. He is passionate about recovery and this has provided him with the opportunity to spread the word both here and abroad. A career highlight has been working for the World Health Organisation in Palestine.

Coproduction and the service approach

Co-production sits at the heart of understanding how we support recovery, within the context of behaviour that may have the potential to challenge. Chris and his colleagues have actively been involved in the development of the Making Ours Services Safer Strategy, ensuring this initiative is relevant and has a context. Chris will describe his involvement, experience and what co-production means from his perspective
