Title:
Narratives of personalisation in mental health: a collective case study
Authors:
Coyle, David S.
Abstract:
This work describes the impact of personalisation on users and professional workers identities in four mental health care settings. The development and context of personalisation is identified and set within an emergent narrative of consumer choice and austerity. International personalisation research is compared and a discussion of UK mental health literature is presented. The social constructions of key participants are analysed through their narrative accounts as they undertook identity work while being involved with individual budget pilots, either as users, carers, brokers or mental health professionals. The work employs Stake’s collective case study as the method of combining semi-structured interview data taken from participants in four personalisation studies designed and led by this author between 2008-2011. Narrative social constructionist methods, positioning theory and story-line are used in the analysis to produce a framework of participants’ orientation to personalisation. The importance of nuance as opposed to binary construction towards personalisation is highlighted, as are the positioning actions of independent brokers for the success of personalisation. The importance of co-production and challenging professional asymmetry in health and social mental health care services is clearly made as are the implications for practice. The value of the proposed framework and possible future research are discussed.
