The Healing Affect Of Peer Support For People With Mental Illness

Talking with someone who knows what you’re going through can make all the difference when you’re in hospital for treatment of a mental illness. Faith Rockburne, who is a Peer Support worker at St. Michaels Hospital in Toronto, finds personal healing for herself as well knowing that she is helping someone recover.

Faith was on the show last week to talk about her lifelong battle with treatment resistant depression. Group therapy played a major role in her recovery and she’s using that experience to help others.
