ABSTRACT
The developement of the service users' movement is presented that contributed not only to their changed roles (from passive to active participants) but also to the efforts for the inclusion of users in the discourse about themselves. Social inclusion is broader, multidimensional concept, but in the article it is presented on micro level. In social work, social inclusion on micro level can be defined as participation in the process of planning social services. It is a part of the co-creation of the solution. Article is based on the work that has been writen by people with personal experience in the field of mental health and by hendicapped people (Chamberlin, Oliver, Morris, Beresford, Croft, Lamovec, Pecarirj, Wallcraft). From their work we have been able to see that people with personal experience develop their own theory (disability theory), concepts (independent living, recovery) and that they organize anti discrimination campaigns. Besides that, review of users' movement shows, that their efforts have changed and aimed to broader social inclusion in all spheres of their life, including education and research. Development of service users' movement clearly shows that only inclusion in the planning of social services is not enough and that for broader changes people with personal experience should be involved into research as well. Decision for this is based on the theory of inclusion and on the premise about what we can do in social work practice to achieve this social inclusion.
