Karima Velji, Callum Tyrrell, Mark Rice, Andrea Marshall and Sanaz Riahi

Abstract

Patient partnership has become a central element of healthcare delivery in many countries. The concept has specific relevance in mental health, as it is a critical enabler of recovery and healing (Bailey and Williams 2014). Patient partnership implies active engagement of patients in shaping decisions at the direct care, organizational and system level (Health Quality Ontario 2017). This article will outline the concept of patient partnership, and highlight the journey of one mental health organization .
