About the PhD thesis

Organizational user involvement has received growing attention over the past years in Denmark as well as internationally, as a means to develop person-centred services targeting the actual needs, problems and preferences of service users. User involvement in the design and development of mental health services, however, is not common practice, and still much user involvement is described as tokenistic.

This thesis presents the design, test and evaluation of a smartphone-based technology (MindFrame) to support the needs of young adults newly diagnosed with schizophrenia in the everyday management of living with the illness. In order to move beyond tokenistic
service user engagement, the technology was co-designed with young adults diagnosed with schizophrenia, using a participatory design approach.

The thesis provides a perspective of the possibilities of smartphone-based young adult schizophrenia care, and discusses the use of participatory design thinking and tools to foster participation and engagement in the design of mental health care, with, not for its
users.
