> I certainly could have used a life coach/recovery guide. A good one could have saved me from years of fumbling in the dark.

Yes, me three!!! lol. Seriously, though, I got my social work diploma over 25 years ago, and have been lost, blind in the dark up until a year and a half ago. I found an organization who assigned me a free community counselor, and damn, is he *good*!! One thing you might want to google is 'strengths based recovery', which is what this guy uses, and I have gone on to use it in working with homeless folks. It is 'all the rage' in social work. Seriously, I used to think it was BS...but....

What is a Strengths-Based Approach to Mental Health?

You are not your mental illness, nor does your illness define who you are and how you live your life. A strengths-based approach to mental health recognizes and embraces these facts.

Strengths is a concept that encompasses many aspects of who people are. Strengths include character traits, talents, and abilities. When you recognize, develop, and use them, you can take forward action and be who you are. You are empowered to live well in spite of mental illness and other challenges.

Therapists draw from a variety of theories and techniques to help people work past mental health challenges. Some are problem-oriented and seek to uncover what is wrong. Other mental health professionals, such as strengths-based counselors, arent as concerned with the problem as they are with what is already working and what people have within them.

A strengths-based approach to mental health leans heavily toward exploring, developing, and using your traits and abilities to transcend problems; however, that doesnt mean that strengths-based therapy never explores problems. Therapy is rarely all-or-nothing but instead uses a wide range of approaches to help people heal. Strengths-based therapy just focuses more on things within you that already work.
