Biography

Dr Gwernan-Jones returned to the PARTNERS2 project in October 2019. PARTNERS2 is a collaborative care intervention for people living with psychosis, where a specialist practitioner in mental health is sited in primary care in order to support people living with psychosis who are not in crisis, to help them improve their physical health, stabilise their mental health and increase the control they have over their lives. PARTNERS2 is unique in collaborative care in that it frames its approaches drawing from theories of personal recovery.
