Support for depression from Bipolar Disorder

Hi my name is Andrea and I have experience as a Peer Support Worker for Mental Health related challenges. 8 years ago, I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder 1 with psychotic features. I know how important it is to have someone to listen.

I’ve been working as a Peer Support Worker for 3.5 years. I can help you move towards your goals. In my life, I’ve tried to make the best of the good times, including international travel, and weather the storms of the bad time, including avoiding hospitalization 4 times. I’m really good at finding resources and may be able to help you find income that suits your wellness fluctuations, for example. We speak the same language due to our shared experience so if you’d like to talk, please reach out.

I am available as a Supporter to help you in a compassionate and non judgmental way. Through deep listening and sharing experience, we can make meaning and create new understandings that we derive ourselves. This serves to ignite empowerment to direct our own path.

Also, I have discovered many tools and resources which may provide a scaffolding for creating a lifestyle design that works for you.
