As a member of the Wellness Program at Arcadia Mental Health I have had an opportunity to experience the need and importance of staffing positions as a conduit to life skills information, as well as medical treatment. Through the Peer Advocate position it seems that there is a movement towards a support group philosophy that would provide one client sharing their experience, health improvement, and hope with another which is not only gratifying but an important bridge between the Psychological/Administrative staff and the patients.
I would love to be involved in some way with this progressive treatment plan. I have improved immensely since I first began treatment at AMH, reducing my medication and being very involved in my community and my personal life. Because I use outside resources to subsidize and strengthen my own program I would like to know if there is a position within the Wellness Program that I could share these skills for the benefit of others? I have begun taking classes in Psychology to achieve my Master's degree and have useful ideas about programs or routines that would enhance the physical and spiritual health of those getting medication and therapy through the wonderful staff of Psychiatrists.
Is there someone I could speak to at Arcadia Mental Health who might be willing to meet with me and see what skills I could bring to a peer advocate position? I'm not sure this is the appropriate forum, but it felt right to reach out and ask about a job in the field where my passion and focus come together.
Thank you,
Lisa Ballard Powell
