Diana Rose is a social scientist and has also been a user of mental health services all her adult life. After a very difficult time in a lecturing job, followed by five years as a 'community mental patient', she brought her two identities together to do user-led research. This was strongly influenced by her involvement in the UK user/survivor movement. The first project was undertaken in an NGO where she developed a way of evaluating services from the service user perspective. In 2001, she moved to the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, to work in the Service User Research Enterprise (SURE). She now co-directs SURE and has been appointed Senior Lecturer in User-Led Research.
