Involving people with lived experiences of mental distress in research is on the agenda in many countries. In this paper we discuss the situation in Great Britain and Norway. We offer some concrete examples of user involved research and discuss similarities and differences, opportunities and challenges in our two countries. User involved research encompass a culture-change in the research communities, and challenge the dominant knowledgebase and traditional discourses. Those who have in-depth knowledge of the topic in focus and the phenomena to be explored participate in the whole research process. There are various ways of collaborative working and the funding is often limited. Providing sufficient time and resources for democratic planning and talking through roles and expectations is important.
