Struggling with anxiety since he was 17, drugs didn’t help, he hated his job, wasn’t feeling fulfilled, check in and out of mental hospitalizations.
He knew he needed a better plan and he found Peer Support, now he was trained and works with the “Connections” center in Portsmouth, NH
Through training, and working through his own stuff, he realized that that was the missing piece.
A truly inspiring story. Thanks Doug, this is an unedited conversation.
