I've recently been coming across a few more experience experts in the field. These are people who have first hand lived experience of mental health, are largely recovered though they still have crap days and have to keep working on their own recovery, and are part of the psychiatric care team.

Sometimes they are employed within community mental health teams, sometimes within protected living teams. They are used quite a lot here on the European continent, not so much in England but are also quite popular in America.

So I was wondering have you come across them? Would you like to be treated by one?

No, but I wish I did. A lot of times professionals think they understand but they just don't.
