Hi, I’m Barb. I recently joined the wonderful team at Shine, as a Peer Support Worker in Boston. I hope to walk along those who may be struggling with their mental health and show them it can get better. From my own lived experiences, I hope to show commonality.
I am looking forward to making more connections in my local area and already have started with my Neighbourhood team. I still have a lot of training to complete and some of which has and will be a challenge, however I know it will be worth it once out in the community.
I love to be out in nature, kayaking (I will be taking Bert on some adventures and new experiences) I also do yoga and mindfulness for my mental wellbeing. Boston and the surrounding area is very rural but I am sure I can help people make those connections to help them on their Journey to recovery.
