For mental health and diagnosis, work on race equality has traditionally focused on the lived experience of being Black. In order for co-production to succeed, understanding has to be two-way, involving understanding the lived experience of being White alongside and in equal partnership with that of being Black. This is the aim of the Whiteness and Race Equality Network (WREN), which is based in the UK and was set up following a conference at St Catherine's College, University of Oxford (Oxford, UK) in October, 2016.
