I work at the medical respite care shelter for the homeless for men. I am a peer recovery support specialist. I am actually trained to work with women with mental health and trauma-related informed, plus I lived with the experience. I am struggling at my job that they wanted me to do case-management position. I have been helping male clients to get into affordable housing. I remember that I am a state-certified peer specialist. There are times, I could not help a very difficult clients that is "outside of my level" of practice.
I tried to explain to my supervisors what I am trained to do. When I received the poor evaluation. I felt like I am not so valued at the job. Sometimes I feel hopeless. I have talk to my employment specialist and my mentors to see what are the options that I may have.
