In 2007, a series of pilots of new forms of local service delivery in mental health care began in Belgium, called the ‘Therapeutic Projects'. This chapter describes the ‘Horizontal Consultation’ designed to integrate the results of these various local experiments with different user groups. It shows how mental health practitioners described and shared their different experiences and consolidated those experiences in documentary form. In doing so, it explores the relationship between the embodied-inscribed-enacted framework and Actor-Network Theory, or the sociology of translation.

Keywords:   mental health policy, Belgium, experience, knowledge, translation, Actor-Network Theory
