I am 30 years old and originally from Trondheim. I am a caring person who likes being around other people, being outdoors and spending time with friends and family.
Right now I’m employed as a peer supporter at “Enhet for psykisk helse og rus” [Unit for mental health and substance abuse] in Trondheim Municipality.
I also work at “Lade behandlingssenter Blå kors” [Lade treatment center Blue Cross].
For many years I’ve been working in health and care services. Over the years I have worked with different things, but in recent years I have worked in the field of mental health and substance abuse.
I myself have experience in receiving help from mental health care services, and have some thougths and experiences I would like to share with others in similar situations. For me, motivation and hope of recovery have been a driving force, and with my thoughts about this I think and hope I can help others. “You are not alone”.
