Procovery - 14 months later - Mental Health

I became a Procovery facilitator for Procovery:http://www.procovery.com for 14 months now. It’s the best facilitated peer circle format I’ve yet seen. It works for circles that include:
  • - other facilitators
  • - health care providers
  • - family members and support people
  • - People with any mental disorer
    In fact, the process, which is quite defined, can be used with any group of people who have a disease or disorder from which they cannot “recover”. . .that is, go back to their former state of being.
    Procovery is forward looking. . you accept the present, that the past is behind you, and move forward towards hope, satisfaction, and fullfillment. In addition to mental illness, the Procovery model can be used with
  • - people with Diabetes
  • - people who have the illness of Alcoholism
  • - people who are Homeless.
    and so forth.
    I have started two groups so far, one in a Residential Care Facility (RCF) for people who happen to be mentally disordered. The other one is in my home. I’m committed to starting at least 2 more groups or circles before the end of July. One at my church, where they have several programs for the homeless, and one in a church or facility nearby, so that healthcare providers can refer people who are comming out of hospital or residential facilities can have a place to continue their Procovery
    I also have a BLOG that I contribute to 3-5 times a week related to hope, support, and inspiration for people who are PROCOVERING.
