Synopsis: Community-based participatory research is described as a collaboration between researchers and participants, in which community stakeholders are engaged as members of the research team. The utilization of this type of research model within the field of mental health has broadened over the last few years, particularly in relation to community change efforts. Rapid ethnographic methods are often used by a research team to collect a large amount of data within a short period of time. This topical discussion will describe the integration of community-based participatory research and rapid ethnographic methods in the study of system-of-care communities. Leaders from two communities that participated in Case Studies of System Implementation will describe their experiences during the research project, including the challenges and benefits of this type of research and how they have utilized study results. The topical discussion will allow audience members to engage in discussion around this process.
