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 :)

Tonight is going to be about the real life heart to heart struggles that survivors are going through around the World. Because I work for an Independent Living Center which is a civil rights organization run bye and for people with disabilities I sit in a unique position to offer peer Support and Advocacy as both a survivor and as a peer support specialist with a disability who aqlso lives the struggle so I need support as well!!!
Stop thinking of disability as a loss but instead a way to learn and discover new and positive traits about yourself. If you don’t know it yet you the survivor offer the best recovery tools available when you dare to make a difference and start fighting all of the negative self-talk and get motivated to live a bold new life without limits and take back your destiny.
Special Note. I may play a prerecorded show for the 1st 45 minutes or more tonight due to my own personal struggles that I am going through right now but once I finish and I hope to do so early I will come on live and we will do a live call in show!

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...?
My Guest Tonight is Aaron Beltran. He’s 23 years old and because of several concussions and head injuries he is multiple Brain Injury Survivor. He I only had a slight concussion was dizzy and got sick after a little while. Then I was fine did not think too much of it. He was told by his Doctors that if I ever hit my head again I probably will not be here anymore. The first time I have had a concussion. I was in fourth grade playing football with all my friends and as I was running to catch the ball, I ran into a tree. I only had a slight concussion was dizzy and got sick after a little while I was fine and did not think too much of it. Then about six months later, I was riding a horse that took off with me. I ended up falling off my helmet came off and I hit my head hard. It also broke my arm on this fall. My mother rushed me to the doctor as I had seizures with this head injury. I don’t remember too much about just what people have told me. Then a couple of years later I was at a horse show and I jumped the fence when I went over the head of my horse and fell on my head. I was wearing a helmet and a safety vest. I still had a bad concussion and was dizzy and sick for two days. A lot of years went by and every now and then for no reason I would get a little dizzy at times and did not think much of it. At the time I was 18 years old and them out foxhunting in Maryland coming up to a jump the horse decided to stop now, when I was foxhunting. We didn’t have a harness on a helmet, so as a horse stopped his head came up hit me in the face and the helmet flew off. I did stay on the horse and had a bloody face my helmet flew off. I did stay on the horse and had a bloody nose, but being who I am. I brushed it off and kept on going for another hour. When I did get back to the barn the grooms asked if I was okay. They said I was white as a sheet and I told them I didn’t feel very well, so they put me in the car and took me to the hospital.
Lets make a positive approach to enlighten people to learn about brain injury in a positive fashion! Getting the word out is healthy for people without brain injuries to learn and help those who are survivors. Why wait until you get confronted with brain injury to learn about them?
OPEN MIC NIGHT FOR ANYONE INVOLVED WITH BRAIN INJURY.... CAREGIVERS, FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS....
TELL YOUR STORIES. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD. HELP THE PUBLIC UNDERSTAND. HELP EACH OTHER!!!
Wonder how many people go through struggles with brain injuries?
Wonder what kind of hardships they have?
Are you curious if anyone sees things the way you do with brain injuries?

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.
