Overzicht wetenschappelijk onderzoek

Er is tot dusverre nog geen onderzoek gedaan naar de effectiviteit van ervaringsdeskundigen als het gaat om suicidepreventie. Wel zijn er een aantal zogenaamde randomised clinical trials gedaan waarbij gekeken is hoe effectief ervaringsdeskundigen waren bij de behandeling van mensen die last hadden van depressieve klachten.
