Another great episode in this series.

Important reflections on the contrast between workplaces that support and value the well being of the staff within them, and those that don't.

Must watch for leaders within #mentalhealth services who wish to create compassion cultures.

1/
1:55 - 3:40

Great description of "homely" team where the health of staff was prioritised by the manager and colleagues "had each others' backs".

2/
4:05 - 4:15

Contrasted with a workplace where in response to a toxic workplace culture she was "given the message" that "their was something wrong me", creating a "deep sense of shame".

For @tadorna, #Covid19 made him feel like a #patient - again. We should not ever let #diabetes define us. It made him feel vulnerable because of this whole lot of uncertainties. Lack of #insulin and supplies was a worry.

For Bastian, #PeerSupport was key during this #pandemic. #telehealth for him is uploading his data and having a Zoom call with his endo. We #PwD want digital AND personal interaction with our #HCP.

Talk about a strong start ⁦⁦@In2gr8mh⁩!

In conversation with #mentalhealthstigma researcher with #livedexperience, Patrick Corrigan:

“I think one of the best things to happen in the last 10-15 years in mental health is peer support.”
Also check out 10:50-11:30 on the effect of the “us and them” on outcomes for people accessing services.
...and 15:09-16:10 on "The Clinician's Illusion" in mental health and it's impact on how we perceive the possibility of people living their best lives.

Great paper by @HelenaRoennfel2 and @DrLouiseByrne on senior staff's understanding of #livedexperience workforce issues: publish.csiro.au/ah/Fulltext/AH…

I particularly ❤️ Sam:

"...But you know just saying ‘you’re not recovered enough to do this job’ is a load of bullshit." (Sam)
"The ambiguity in this study reinforces the need for greater consensus in defining and determining relevant lived experience in the context of designated roles."

As someone who has previously been responsible for recruiting peer workers, I was less interested in what... 1/2
...experiences they had had, and more interested in what they had learnt from those experiences that might help them to connect with and support others, especially their capacity to work with people who may have different experiences and worldviews to their own. 2/2

I’m taking my internet dropping out all morning as a sign I should do something offline.
Thankfully, printed @DrLouiseByrne’s latest paper yesterday & treated myself to some new highlighters on weekend (given my others are locked down in my LTU office). #workingfromhome #phdlife Image
Looking forward to speaking with young people in coming weeks involved in groups with #peer workers that have recently moved online.
It will be interesting to see if their experiences of #peersupport are different to those in face to face groups. Image
No so keen on the idea of “monitoring” or #peer “counselling” but can definitely say based on my scoping review that informal and formal opportunities for #peersupport are valued by health care professionals with #livedexperience of emotional distress. Image

This is a donation plea and story.

I run the @In2gr8mh website and campaign out of my own pocket. It was the first platform to #peersupport any mental health professional with lived experience,and challenge organisational stigma since launch in 2017.We are 301 members now!😃 1/
It was born of my own experience of how hard stigma can be to navigate as a professional within our own systems, a lack of support and how our lived experience is rarely valued. 2/
I am recovered, and recovering my career and my finances from the impact of needing time out to heal. I now work in mental health part-time on strategy and guidance and I love reconnecting with trainees and colleagues about something I am so passionate about n ways that I can. 3/

Action alert!📢Remember the Leslieville crash where a driver struck a young woman in the #Dundas bike lane, critically injuring her with horrific head injuries? Her name is Julia and SHE NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW. Please go to: gofundme.com/f/julia-rehabi…
#BikeTO #TOpoli #TODeadlyStreets
Here's the story if you don't remember: toronto.ctvnews.ca/cyclist-suffer… Julia was riding in the bike lane, doing nothing wrong, when a speeding driver struck her, nearly killing her. Maddeningly, no followup re driver's name or whether charges laid. #BikeTO #TODeadlyStreets #RoadViolence
Enabled by #TODeadlyStreets and lack of any physical protection, this driver inflicted: "two skull fractures, brain hemorrhaging, two arterial dissections resulting in multiple strokes, broken ribs, a broken collar bone, fractured bone fragments in her cheeks, a punctured lung...

As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

Growing up in the #IndianArmy, I absolutely loved it! By the time I was 18, we had moved over 9 times across 9 states! #Diversity #India #TravelTuesday #IWS #VoicesIWS
