Experts By Experience /
Peer Support is amazing: Not just for the people who receive support, but also for their mentors. Cutting-edge research suggests that acting as a Peer Support mentor is actually the key to keeping those mentors on the road to recovery themselves.
If you’re looking to empower or upskill yourself, becoming a Peer Supporter or an accredited Expert by Experience might be for you.

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 a more holistic, empathetic, and effective care and service. Their contributions are rooted in real-world experiences.
We believe that to be effective, Peer Support needs 4 key attributes: think of these like the legs of a chair. If Peer Support is missing even 1 of these 4 “legs”, then it may not be effective.With trained Experts by Experience and access to Level 1 and Level 3 Accredited Peer Supporter Courses, we promise to provide the highest quality Peer Support out there.Our Framework was developed in line with the NHS HEE Competence Framework for Peer Support Workers & evidence-based lived experience research from across the world.
