Having recognised the value of the service user research in West Galway - Pathways Report 2002, it was decided that a similar research project would have a valuable input to the developing service in East Galway Mental Health Service. Thus the East Galway Pathways Research Project came about. This project was service user led- and service user focused. The project was also facilitated by service users who had achieved a level of expertise in research methodology following their experience in West Galway. Their time, care and attention to detail must be commended. Important considerations 'have been identified in relation to service user education relating to their diagnosis, their treatment plan and medication. They identify the need for a high standard of accommodation in the hospital and community setting with access to accredited training programmes and employment opportunities. The need to direct our resources to care in the community is most important so that it supports our service user to achieve their full potential. I thank the research group for achieving their purpose giving a voice to our service users. We are challenged and energised by the findings and will continue to work with our service users in developing and delivering a high quality mental health service.
