I finally had my interview for the Compeer volunteer job.
The lady was really nice and it seemed to go well.
The next step for them is to do a police check, but as I already work for Government I have had one before, so that should not be an issue. I dont think I have broken law since 🙂
Next February I do an Induction Course for 1 day.
When they find someone compatible, I have to meet their therapist and then if all that goes well, I meet the person.
Most people who require a “friend” have been struggling with Bipolar and Schizophrenia. I read a few blogs here that are written by people with Bipolar and read a few autobiographies as well, so am more familiar with this. I will have to read up on the Schizophrenia a bit more.
A very long process, which will make sure that all goes well.
There is also a Suicide Awareness course I could do next year, which sounds interesting. It will be interesting to see it from the counseling side rather than the person thinking about it.
Should all be very interesting.
