I Got Hired For A Job In Mental Health

Yes! You heard it right!

I got hired as a Peer Support Specialist in my county. Actually, I’m one of the first in my county.

I’m not sure if others will be hired the same date I will be, but I’m sure there’s more to be hired eventually. I can officially check off “Getting A Job” on my goal list.

I was super, super stoked about this, and actually waited to tell you guys, because I felt like if I got it, it would be very special. Although, if I didn’t get it, it would also be very saddening, especially if I told everyone. It took me 3 months total, with 2 interviews, to get hired. So I was really itching to say something the entire time!

I had applied to maybe 20 jobs before I got this one, and I didn’t really want any of them, but I needed more income than I was receiving to live. I was willing to take a lot of jobs, basically.

This is only the beginning of a dream for me. Or, perhaps it’s in the middle, as I got engaged not too many months ago, along with other good things.

I apologize for not being active. I was really stressed out all month. Fiance’s father died, we’ve been having financial issues, and the relationship was suffering a bit, amongst other things.

But here I am! Here’s to a new path going forward! 🍾🥂🍻

Thanks for reading! And until next time!

    Congratulations! Welcome to the peer supporter family! I just passed my three year anniversary as a peer worker for a respite house and it’s been the best three years of my life! Hope you will find the same happiness!
