Jill's Personal Story: Working with Consumers

Jill Shepherd


As a Peer Support Specialist II for the Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health, I work with consumers all day long. My main responsibility is to schedule assessments for clinicians within our department. I am also responsible for two consumer groups. One is a rehabilitation group that I co-facilitate. The other is a support group that emphasizes wellness and recovery, and I am the main facilitator. Each week, 11 to 12 people participate in the support group. As the sessions move forward, I see our consumers progressing to wellness and recovery. Many of them feel better just talking about their issues, and are encouraged when they hear others discuss tell their wellness and recovery stories. It's a learning process.
