  Devon Recovery Research

and Innovations Group


The Devon Recovery Research and Innovations Group (D-RRIG) was set up in 2010 and had an open membership of anyone interested in research and innovations in mental health recovery, including people who identified themselves as activists, experts by experience and people who use services, supporters and carers, professionals of all disciplines, students and trainees, academics and researchers.


Its funding has now been reallocated to a new project within Recovery Devon, the Lived Experience Advisory Panel or LEAP. The LEAP will provide opportunities for people with lived experience to be given a voice in the design and governance of Devon Partnership Trust’s services, through attendance and participation in meetings and planning groups supported by DPT colleagues. One of the main aims of the D-RRIG, which was to make a difference to mental health services in Devon, will also be one of the main aims of the LEAP, so in this sense the work is continuing in a different way rather than being brought to a close. 

In the four years of its life D-RRIG established a supportive community of peers from the whole spectrum of people connected by an interest in better mental health services, and facilitated information sharing, innovative project work and authoritative guidance.

On this page you can find archives of its meetings and related papers and resources. The page will be maintained for a short time before its materials are transferred across the Recovery Devon website.


Recovery Devon thanks Devon Partnership Trust and Rethink Mental Illness for their support.
