The IPDJ is delighted that the Institute for Research in Mental Health and Substance Abuse which is part of the Faculty of Health Sciences at Buskered University College (BUC), Norway, has sponsored a paper in this latest issue (Volume 3 Number 1). The paper is written by several of the Institute’s researchers and considers the potential for collaboration and partnerships between service users in the mental health and substance abuse services and their therapists.
There is also a guest editorial from the Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences which profiles the work of the Faculty and shows how collaborative working has enabled the development of the Institute for Research in Mental Health and Substance Abuse and the the Science Centre Health and Technology – both of which are creative venues for innovation, research and learning in healthcare.
