🧵Ever wonder what therapists use for #Suicide prevention? We asked: therapists use current best practices (~90%) BUT ~40% of clinicians endorse contracts for safety, no-harm contracts, &/or no-suicide contracts (not good!) #MentalHealthAwareness link👇 1/7 #psychtwitter
We asked mental health (MH) clinicians & MH allies (teachers, #FirstResponders, peer support) what Best Practices (Crisis Response Planning & Safety Plan) & Contraindicated Practices (contract 4 safety, no-harm contract, &/or no-suicide contract) they use. 2/7
Mental health allies endorsed the Best Practices & Contraindicated Practices at lower rates than mental health clinicians. This leaves room for more training on best practices with a focus on removing interventions that don’t help. #PeerToPeer #PeerSupport 3/7

Almost relapsed on 🥃 when passed over by the Columbus, OH @DeptVetAffairs along with other protected #Veterans. A Civilian Social Work Director bypassed all Veteran Interns serving there for 12 months for another Civilian hire. Medical Marijuana saved my life @lastprisonerprj
This was after surviving 2 deployments in Iraq, an RPG blast, being shot at through a door I was breaching and using Veteran benefits to put myself through school receiving my MSW. The VA still let a qualified and disabled veteran social worker fall through the cracks.
I decided to join National Youth Advocate Program and provided thousands of hours of assessment, therapy, resources and aftercare services impacted by sexual, physical, emotional and verbal trauma. This triggered my PTSD bad, but I fought through it to be there with my clients.

✨ what to do after someone’s suicide attempt: a (non-exhaustive) guide for practicing loving, supportive, non-carceral + non-directive care ✨

CW: discussion of suicide attempts

#PeerSupport
#NoCopsInCrisis what to do after someone's suicide attempt. a guide for prac
1) Express empathy. Avoid anger, guilt, blame and shame:

Now is the time to communicate your love. If this is a person we love deeply or are in relationship with, we can become personally impacted with their decision to attempt suicide.
We may be navigating different, competing emotions during this time - our love for this person, our shock, our fear, confusion around why they did it and what was going on for them, or defensiveness around why we weren't "enough" for them to want to be alive.

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

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…

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...
