University Health Behavioral Health

Being a Peer Support means alot to me because I am also in recovery. I remember being at my rock bottom and having no one to lean on and no resources available. Atleast I didn’t know anything about any resources. I remember seeing so many mental health professionals and thinking to myself, “do these people really understand and have been through similar things I’ve been through?” “How can someone who doesn’t know understand?”. I wanted to be that person who has had that personal lived experience so I can meet the peer where they are at and say “hey, ive been where you are at. And this is how I navigated through that. There IS HOPE and you CAN do it.”
