About the event
In inclusive research, knowledge is developed and shared by people with and without experiential expertise. But involving peer experts as participants in research projects, policy and implementation still doesn’t come naturally. Why is peer expertise so important? And how can peer expertise be implemented in services? During our online event, we will exchange ideas on these and other topics. In addition, several international speakers will talk about the importance of peer expertise in mental health services design, implementation and evaluation and how it could be put in practice.
