Mulvale, A., Miatello, A., Hackett, C., & Mulvale, G. (2016). Applying experience-based co-design with vulnerable populations: Lessons from a systematic review of methods to involve patients, families and service providers in child and youth mental health service improvement. Patient Experience Journal, 3(1), 117-129.
An article from a group of Canadian researchers on experience-based co-design (EBCD) in vulnerable populations. It provides a thorough background on the EBCD innovation and how it is distinct from other forms of participatory research. Although the context for the work is child and youth mental health services rather than mental health promotion, it reinforces that all children and youth in this context are vulnerable due to age and mental health issues.
This journal article is recommended reading for anyone engaging children and youth in research. It provides helpful suggestions for addressing power imbalances in collaborations and lists innovative arts-based and visual media approaches.
