Mental health patients to help those who help them

People with psychiatric disorders are going to be trained so they can give researchers a better idea of how they should be treated.

Twenty patients in the south-western Swedish town of Lund are going to given the education and will then be paid to take part in an advice panel at a research centre.

They will talk about their experiences of different treatments to try to plug the gap between theory and practice in psychiatric care.

The plan is being welcomed by mental health groups.
