About the host
My name is Taamer and I am an Organization Trained and a Licensed Peer Support Specialist. I started this journey a couple years ago by attending peer support groups through Project Return Peer Support Network (PRPSN) when I was struggling with grief and anger at becoming the only parent to my (then) 12 year old daughter, who lost her mother to cancer. Struggling to find resources, I came across an organization Project Return Peer Support Network (PRPSN) and their support groups through which I found support from others with shared lived experience, which really resonated with me. I would eventually apply for and complete the (PRPSN) training and internship program to become an Organizational trained (and now a Licensed) Peer Support Specialist through the State of California.
Motivation for help
My motivation stems from a sense of giving back and helping to provide additional resources for those who do not have access to any.

Taamer lead this group wonderfully, he shares experiences that relate to the topic of discussion. He allows participants to express their thoughts and provide feedback to others. I felt welcomed and comfortable throughout. Thank you!

You have such a positive way of communicating and understanding people of different beliefs and backgrounds. I like that you open space for so many people to share and that you don’t try to step in constantly. You encourage others to provide feedback instead. Some other facilitators will monopolize and talk about themselves and often really unrepeatable situations. When you do share, you are always right on point and in a way that seems really relatable to most of the group so that everyone understands your perspective or the message when you share your own personal experiences. I think that takes a lot of skill of what you describe as listening with empathy to what someone else is really trying to communicate and not getting stuck in your own mind or your own personal interpretation that maybe entirely different and irrelevant.

You helped make what started off as a really sad Valentines day really wonderful with what you shared. I can’t express how much that helped.

I loved hearing your Jack in the Box story at the end Taamer.! That was the funniest and sweetest story. It made my day. Please don’t ever stop this group. I look forward to it whenever I can attend.

Project Return Peer Support Network

PRPSN offers peer-to-peer support to help individuals reach their personal goals, such as living independently, going to school, getting a job, having friends and enjoying life in the community, and advancing in their recovery. Each group is individualized and self-directed. Activities and curricula are created by the facilitators and group participants. While some groups direct conversations on specific recovery-based discussions, others focus on physical wellness and its connection to mental wellness, building socialization skills, and the exploration of varying coping methods ranging from arts and music to writing and much, much more!
