  • Interesting that this appears to be one sided (from the tone of the article). As a peer worker, who has some contact with the medical side of things, I have my own set of concerns….Ethically, I have found peer workers rising to much higher standard than psychiatrists (my first psychiatrist worked in the same hospital as my stepfather, with whom I had many issues. Not very much was kept confidential…they had a standing appointment after every session!). I have been repeatedly asked to ‘bend’ rules that are particular to my area by medical model personnel. Believe me when I day it is far more intimidating to be treated by someone you work with than to be treating someone you work with…..and confidentiality is something that is far more concerning to me than to the medical modelers – they haven’t experienced the adverse effects it has on one’s life when betrayed
