October is Disability Employment Awareness Month.
Five years ago in October I was trained on job search techniques for people with disabilities.
Really a lot of the job search methods aren’t unique to those of us with a mental health challenge.
It’s often simply that we’ve not had access to career counseling of any kind.
Today it’s exponentially better for a lot of peers because career services are now part of a wraparound therapy plan.
We should expect to be given career counseling. It should go without saying that peers are given this kind of treatment as an adjunct to medication and talk therapy or other therapy.
It’s a victory that peers today have better options in this regard.
I’m going to write in here on weekdays about careers and alternate with writing about nutrition.
I’ve set myself down my own Food Spending Challenge.
It’s a modified version of the one Gwyneth Paltrow tried to live on to mimic the budget of a person collecting food stamps.
