As an external PhD candidate at the Radboud University Nijmegen, I am carrying out research on experiential knowledge and experiential expertise in depression, by evaluating the online community Depression Connect. Together with mental health institution Pro Persona and Radboudumc, we are examining the effect of online peer support for people with depression. This project includes several methods, both qualitative and quantitative research as well as a meta-analysis is being conducted.
