This paper describes a qualitative study of the experiences of young mental health service users who engaged in a Participatory Action Research (PAR) project about stigma in mental health. The PAR project was comprised of eight young people using a community-based mental health service, who undertook research training and controlled all stages of the research process. The author discusses findings regarding the positive changes that occurred for the young people as a result of engaging in the research.
