The purpose of this paper is to provide a profile of Jo Mullen. Jo provides a short background to her life and is then interviewed by Jerome. Jo tells us about the teaching resources that she has developed to increase understanding of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). While this is a single case study, it contains numerous helpful insights of how Jo has developed and presented her work, along with two mental health nurses, and of the high quality educational interventions she has produced. Jo presents a model of co-production, where service partner and mental health professional are equals. It would be helpful if mental health services invested in supporting talented individuals like Jo, to develop and disseminate the tools she has created. Thus far Jo has written her own personal account of what it is like to cope with BPD, a bigger training resource, “Wot R U Like?” and a board game, Personapoly, to help individuals solve social and personal problems.
