Do you really trust the advice of someone that has never experienced any difficulty in life? We always have the choice to follow advice, or not follow. I am fortunate not to have a psychiatric disability, but in trying to help the people in my life that do, I trust the experiences of people that have. I'd rather listen to someone who has heard voices to know what it feels like rather than a shrink that hasn't. I'd rather hear about what med reactions feel like from someone who has lived through them, rather than trust a doctor that doesn't think they are a big deal. Do you trust anyone? > >

> Only point I want to make is that I donít treat anyone, I am a lay person. I work as a peer counselor thru a non-profit in Santa Fe. A PC is someone with a disability who has coped well with their disability, has gone thru training and works with other disabled persons (who would prefer never to be labeled as sick). The major thrust of my work is independent living skills, allowing disabled persons to be more independent.
> Lots of my time is spent on funding issues and giving referrals and info. Since PCís tend to see people at their home and also have disabilities themselves, clients are often more open about problems or abuse than they are in a docís office. I am not qualified, nor would I ever try the treat these issues; I give referrals to the approprate person(s) and support the client if they chose to get treatment.
