An Expert by Experience (EbE) is someone who has personal experience with a particular situation, condition, or challenge and thus has gained unique insights and understanding from that lived experience.
Experts by Experience are used in healthcare, social care and the mental health sector. At StoriBoard we apply this concept across all contexts.
The value of EbEs lies in their ability to provide a different viewpoint from professionals, which can lead to more holistic, empathetic, and effective care and services. Their contributions are rooted in real-world experiences.
