I really want to post this. Because i think is a great article. Is an article i had to write an essay about for my application to peer support worker.
I know it is a bit long but def worth the read!!! Toke me a few reads to fulling understand every bit. And helpful for self in recovery or someone youre supporting!!very insightful hope helps
And This is based on this person
I will befliefly say what the article is about -
it a patient in hospital who has schizonphia and the staff arent very accepting of her and write her future based on her diagnosis. -- recovery is unquie jounery where need wisdom not just knowledge. Your enviroment and the people around you have big impact. Chioces, information about illness, options, control, meaning, small steps, mutral support, listening, empathy, understanding, opptortumistic outlook, right to fail,coping skills,non judgement,caring,seeing strength in someone, change and grow, accepting them and all sorts are good for empowering someone to make them more self aware of themselves and good for recovery journey. Peer support workers can be role models understand, give hope ect. And that without hope youre dead. And heart are unqui like recovery and some people become "hard of heart" which means past caring. But undeath hard of heart is a broken heart which need understanding
