Intentional Peer Support Responds to AOT/ Forced Psychiatry! Chris Hansen, Director of Intentional Peer Support, describes a principled, relational alternative to forced psychiatric interventions like AOT (Assisted Outpatient Treatment). Chris has been promoting, developing and training peers worldwide in Intentional Peer Support for a decade. She has assisted the development of numerous peer-run crisis respites in a number of countries. Before her work in Intentional Peer Support, Chris served as an advisor to New Zealand mental health services and on the board for the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry. She was a member of the New Zealand delegation to the United Nations to develop the Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. In this episode, Chris describes what Intentional Peer Support is and how it came to be developed as an alternative to force and coercion in mental health. She shares her experience (both lived and work-related) of how and why forced treatments (like AOT) are damaging. Shel explains why many people believe that alternatives need to be happening, what some of these alternatives are, and how they might come to be more broadly available to people who want them.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Peer support for people with similar life experiences has proven to be tremendously important towards helping many move through difficult situations. These similar life experiences may include people who have lost children, people with alcohol and substance abuse problems, and etc. In general, the value of peer support has been substantiated by the fact that people who have like experiences can better relate and can consequently offer more authentic empathy and validation. A Peer Support Group is a voluntary gathering of people with similar challenges to share experiences, reveal coping strategies and offer understanding. Tonight we will take a closer look at the peer support group concept through the eyes a newly formed organization whose mission is to embrace, educate and empower families and communities impacted by substance use disorder. Can a Peer Support Group be what you have been looking for?
