  • Amen. Keep on squabbling. Once getting past human the whole “peer” has turned into another DSM thingy IMO. Once I got my Peer Support Certification, I was rejected for a position helping folks transition from local short term inpatient ward to community resources. These positions were thru a local “peer run agency” working for the local medical behemoth. I was told by one of the “peer interviewers” that they felt I wouldn’t be encouraging strongly enough to stay on their medications!” I haven’t worked in the mental health field in several years, my sanity was too much at risk.
