This has come to my attention again.
Those PEERS who disregard SAMHSA and their State oversight agency’s Certified Peer Specialist core principles, ethics and practice who choose to lie and cause harm to others based on untruths.
Those PEERS who will blatantly withhold that which is the truth.
Those PEERS who will “stab” you in your back.
(La Dolce Vita Film Still, Federico Fellini )
In short and in sum, PEERS are not ALL exceptional angels. We are in the business of behavioral health (MH/SU, ID, DD). We are all for the basis of this blog, psychiatric “survivors” and should hold our basis for doing PEER work sacred.
Cause no harm to others, yourself, your community, your comrades, your friends, your place of employment.
Remember where you came from. Remember why you got into the work which PEERS do.
