I am looking To find employment in the mental health field as an advocate or peer supporter. I want to to give hope to those who are suffering and are looking for answers. In 2008 I became mentally ill with depression, suicide attempts, and many hospitalizations. It was a long battle for me at first I wasn't responding to any medications. Finally the doctors said the last resort was ECT'S and I received 32 ECT treatments and started to respond to medication. It also wiped away my memory. Long story short I have not been hospitalized since 2011 and I seek therapy regularly and also have my medication monitored on a regular basis. I have so much to give back to the mental health community. I would live a chance to others and give them hope.
