Poverty and dependency are barriers to the recovery and rehabilitation of people seeking mental health recovery. Clinicians, peer providers, consumers, families, and community services must work together to help individuals achieve financial stability and wellness.
This talk presents lessons of the Collaborative Support Programs of NJ (CSP-NJ) in providing financial services for people in mental health recovery and examples of asset-building services available in many communities. It also describes key components of a peer-facilitated economic empowerment intervention being developed by the NYSPI Center of Excellence for Cultural Competence in partnership with the Wellness Institute at CSP-NJ, the Mental Health Peer Connection (Buffalo, NY), Baltic Street (Brooklyn, NY) and other organizations providing peer and asset-building services, such as the New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS), the United Way of Buffalo and Western NY, and the National Disability Institute.

The UK is catching up with this concept .. finally! Want to know more? Photography .. do you find it helps your mood ? I'd love you to call in and share your thoughts on any of these things or anything else you want to share :)

In this episode we take peer support and peer culture beyond mental health peer centers and 12 step recovery groups. We explore the benefits of moving beyond the surface interactions of everday society. We wonder how we can create cultures of shared power and mutual responsibility - where we have each others backs and meet each other as human beings.
Questions to consider:
What is it that makes us peers as human beings?
What do you value most about peer support and peer culture?
How would you like to see that carried into human relationships and society at large...?

Two part show tonight! The Science Of Happiness, host Lori Faitel will be joining me to tell us details about the changes to our Peer Support Line. I encourage the audience and our hosts to listen. Lori will be in the road, so we'll keep her as long as we can and also hear more about her show and the new earlier platform. Open mics, new Indy's and breaking out the first few holiday tunes. I talked to Alice Cooper. :)
Suicide Hurts was added to the back half of this show. You matter. Get help. People do care.
This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and guests share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery.
More will be revealed! This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we discover the new "me."
We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation. This is a place for survivor's striving to become thrivers. :)
Some nights we will have a featured guest, others we will introduce a topic of recovery, encouraging callers to join us in the discussion. The second part of the show is Open Mic and some great Indy Music, sure to inspire.
Host is Kim Justus, author of In a Flash: Miracles Here and Beyond found at www.inaflash.org
Join me after Kevin's show for some night owl action, with open chat and great tunes! Bring your bad self and share what's on your mind, or just listen to some great Indies.
Many people have an issue with anger, frustration, lack of time and are always wrapped up in their own lives to make time for others. Two worlds collide with this aspect for the brain injured: 1. Communication with others to understand what survivors go through. 2. Caregivers, friends, and loved ones need to listen with an open mind.
PATIENCE IS NEEDED TO MOVE FORWARD.
Listening skills are something most people in our lives need to improve. Strategies are there for learning how to improve these communication barriers. Individuals with brain injuries may not be noticeable to the naked eye but if a common trait by people to stop, listen and ask open ended questions; the frustation and anxiety easily subsides for caring and empathy.
