Transferring knowledge into action is challenging. Ward et al (2009a) developed a framework for bridging this gap. This article describes what helps and hinders getting knowledge into action when using this approach in the field of mental health. Four areas of Scotland were selected which had used resources to inform local planning and participants were interviewed. The resources helped galvanise local action on outcomes and the transfer of evidence into policy. It also facilitated building stronger relationships. Using a knowledge-brokering approach to transfer knowledge into action yielded positive feedback from participants and may have mitigated some prior barriers and enhanced facilitators.
