“This training was an amazing personal journey that bonded our group together and gave us independent strength as well. Overwhelmingly thankful for the introspective nature of peer support training and the disappearance of loneliness in the process. I feel like I am more able to help myself, friends, and family with day to day challenges as well as the more difficult events that we may encounter. Thank you!
“Being trained as a Peer Navigator, I expected to be knowledgeable... how to help veterans who were experiencing 'triggers' and emotional setbacks. What I actually received was more tools to help me be "a better me" and in that same line of empowerment help others around me. I can better encourage others to work through their recovery -- as well as offer them a better, more thorough (body, soul, spirit) wellness toolbox. Now, I can facilitate a more robust wellness program at our organization.”.
From being inpatient twice, I never really felt like I got "upgraded from plastic tools to real tools"....
(Life and coping skills.)
Overall, a FANTASTIC course, love Mike & Sharon, and Compass too!
