Certified Peer Supporter
Hi, there! I'm Pam, and I've experienced recurring depression and suicidality since I was 13. I had an especially rough period of depression when I was pregnant. I've made use of medication, therapy, and ECT. I love to listen, and I'll share my experiences and ideas if you'd like.
I've experienced depression and suicidality since I was 13 years old. I had an especially bad period of depression when I was pregnant. I'm in a good place now, but in the past I've admitted myself to the hospital multiple times to get away from opportunities to kill myself. I've taken advantage of medication, therapy, and ECT. I also have fibromyalgia. I've been a Certified Peer Specialist since 2012, and I've worked as a mobile peer supporter and in a long-term residence. I love to listen and learn about my peers.
