National Centre for knowledge through experience in mental health has received a mandate from Parliament to gather, make valid and communicate knowledge and making it available to the health sector. We are funded by the Directorate of Health, and are a network facilitator in the connection between the experience-based knowledge and regular knowledge in the field of mental health. We challenge both sides and want to promote a comprehensive picture of health and health-inhibitory factors in mental health.
We want the experience-based knowledge to make a difference in the field of mental health. Our vision is equality between traditional knowledge and experience-based knowledge from users and their relatives. We believe that good service requires that the different perspectives and approaches to what provides good health are discussed properly. Through dialogue and cooperation in knowledge and service development, we think that user-influence becomes a natural and integral part of work practices, attitudes (anti-stigma) and research.
Some of our core values:
- Respect - Openness - Innovation
We have a vision based on respect for the individual, and its inherent life skills.
We want to promote dialogue and challenge both the use of knowledge and expertise to get an overall picture.
We are innovative by promoting equality of experience, expertise and knowledge, so that new knowledge can lead to new and better practices.

Ansatte og ledere i flere kommuner i Vesterålen er opprørte over at spesialisthelsetjenesten ikke lenger samhandler med dem om hjelp til personer med alvorlige og langvarige psykiske helse og rus-lidelser.
Ny forskning viser at undervisning i psykisk helse kan minske risikoen for selvmord, men det er ikke obligatorisk i norsk skole. Nå har helsesøstrene laget sitt eget opplegg til ungdomsskolene i Sandefjord.
