About Elliott Phillip Niblack
I am an imperfect human named Elliott who is also a certified Mental Health & Recovery Peer Specialist and Empathetic Communication Specialist. I live with a diagnosis of Bipolar Type II, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and have a history of opiod misuse. My life mission is to create spaces where people can feel safe being their open and honest selves. Because I live in a partnership with my diagnoses I am able to create a life that is healthy, self-directed and I love guiding others in doing the same! Shoot me a message/connection request and we can schedule a time to meet.
My Recovery Story
When I was 12 years old, I lost all memories due an episode of dissociative amnesia. I felt alone in (re)learning the world. The voices in my head, overmedication and sadness led to suicide attempts in my 20's. Years with therapists, doctors, and my life success with a diagnosis of Bipolar II, ADHD and history of opioid misuse helped me become a teacher and now Peer Specialist. I believe everyone is hurting in their own unique way and that by virtue of being imperfect humans we deserve support via love and community. By being with others in support we learn how to be ourselves.
My Motivation To Help
At one point I believed I was alone and hopeless. Then I had my first peer supporter who showed me I had support and infinite potential to live the life I wanted. I am here to pass on that healing.
