I was very touched yesterday to hear from a local family who read my blog when searching for a psychiatric living situation for their young adult child. I was able to connect with them and give them an honest assessment of ins and outs of the place answer questions and direct them to key staff. They had their visit today and I’ve been thinking of them all day and hoping things went well. Whether this person is able to move in or not I still am so happy I made this impact.
So thank you for having the courage to reach out to me! Our conversation really opened up a discussion about residents that are functionally/ emotionally able to being like peer mentors for new residents, and prospective families. The mom said there’s nothing more reassuring than talking to someone who lives there.
So if you’re looking for a residential situation for yourself a family member or friend please reach out to me.
