Stephanie’s video was powerful,I actually watched it.more than once, she seemed not be managing well despite the pressures of her illness college and family ANF appeared to be a very brave young woman.
I have worked throughout my career in a vatiety of settings, and in doing so have seen some methods work better than others. I have had really good experiences connecting folks with NAMI through various groups and their warm.line, I currently have a niece struggling with severe depression and anxiety the warm.line has been of significance to her, while she has professional help the peer support has been a great help, one wonders if the reinforcement that there are better days ahead is of use.I also sit on a board of directors for a mental health agency these meetings.not.only focus.on the fiscal wellness of the agency, which is a significant factor in running , but well also interact with the consumers engaged in the agencies programs and strive to always have a consumer sitting on the board.
This course has been interesting for me, while my work is with folks who are at the end of their lives I still see the need.for.knowledge on wellness and recovery,sometimes in the client I am.working with and also with their family members, people react differently to.the news of a loved ones life coming to an end, and.often need some guidance in positive methods of.coping.
