Mental Health Humor: Duck, Duck, Goose!

Well, we are now done with four days of training for being a Recovery Peer Specialist(RPS). I can tell it is by far the most intense training I have been involved with in a long time and the most specific! Other classes have been about facilitating groups and dealing with general disorders. This training focused more on covering the disorder and educating about different illnesses. Some were about mentoring and holding classes and covering mental health material on skills to cope. And then one course was just for me and helped me find skills to deal with my own disorder.

Recovery Peer Specialists are all of these in one and much, much more! We are really there to advocate for your needs and wants. We become the voice for those that don’t have one. When people are getting mental health services sometimes they need a louder voice. Here’s another chance for me to put my “loud” mouth to good use. Our main goal and belief is that recovery IS POSSIBLE! That means even for those that society has even written off. We work with people who want to have a better life. We help them find goals and plans that will help and enable them reach their fullest potential.

I feel so lucky to be part of the peer specialist movement. Here in Florida, it is just starting and is recognized as an evidence based program. What that means is I will soon have a job working with providers to help my fellow peers. I cannot tell you how happy this makes me feel. I only hope, I am up to the task! I believe I can do it! NO, I know I can and I will help those whose voice has gone unanswered.
