Abstract

Background
Patient and public involvement (PPI) has the potential to strengthen mental health systems in Indonesia and improve care for people living with psychosis. Current evidence from other parts of the world demonstrates the need to understand the contexts in which PPI is to be enacted to ensure optimal implementation.

Objective
To understand service users’ and carers’ views on the current use and potential applicability of PPI within Indonesian mental health services.

Design
Qualitative study incorporating focus groups analysed using thematic analysis.

Setting and participants
Participants included 22 service users and 21 carers recruited from two study sites in Indonesia (Jakarta and Bogor). All participants had experience of psychosis either as a service user or carer.

Results
Despite the value attributed to PPI in relation to improving services and promoting recovery, current use of such activities in Indonesian mental health services was limited. Participants expressed a desire for greater levels of involvement and more holistic care but felt community organizations were best placed to deliver this because PPI was considered more congruent with the ethos of third‐sector organizations. Additional barriers to PPI included stigma and low levels of mental health literacy in both health services and communities.

Discussion and conclusion
Participants felt that there was potential value in the use of PPI within Indonesian mental health services with careful consideration of individual contexts. Future aspirations of involvement enactment should ensure a central design and delivery role for third‐sector organizations. Facilitators to global collaborative research in the context of the current study are also discussed.
