This chapter argues for the importance of research that is directed by users/survivors. It proposes two strategies to transform community-based participatory action research in community mental health. The first strategy is for user/survivor-controlled and -directed research, whereas the second speaks to the importance of graduate training of users/survivors in research. The chapter advocates a systemwide effort to open academic and research discourse up to the full range of user/survivor perspectives and to embrace the challenge of competing conceptualizations and epistemologies of mental illness. Although it notes barriers to these strategies, it offers a fresh perspective for the potential liberatory function of research in community mental health.
