I haven’t written anything for quite a while. I haven’t exactly been busy, but I’ve been “trapped inside my head” a lot. I have issues with staying grounded to “Reality” whatever that is. Lately I’ve been better and focused with “Reality.”
I spent an entire Saturday working on a resume and cover letter for Empowerment Initiatives, Inc. There’s a Peer Mentor position I’ve been eying for quite a while. I had a lot of help from my fiancee writing my resume and cover letter, and had her mother look it over. Overall, I’d say it was a success. I received word on the following Monday that there would be an interview session on Wednesday, March 28th.
I’m feeling pretty confident. I don’t necessarily know I’ll get the job, but I do know I should interview okay. Peer Mentors can be staffed on site at residential apartments, or at their new drop-in center Cornerstone. Cornerstone really interests me. It focuses on both mental health and addictions peer support. I have experience in both!
I believe I’d be side-by-side with clinicians too which I’m all too familiar with. I work well with clinicians. I still see a counselor once a week.
I would need some special Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) training, but it sounds like a great opportunity! I could be effective at a residential location as a Peer Mentor as well, but I don’t know that I’d be able to apply all the experience I’ve learned from my 14+ months of sobriety. I would be able to offer valuable insight at Cornerstone to peers and their loved ones. I’m excited and nervous at the same time!
