DURHAM -- Ron Mangum has ..., 16 June 2011 [cached]
DURHAM -- Ron Mangum has been a clinician since 1977, but for all he does to care for those dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues, there's one thing he can't do: say he's been there.
Mangum said most people using recovery services feel isolated. When another person shares his or her experience, though the road in might be different, the road out to recovery could be the same. It's an "If they can do it, I can do it," approach, he said.
Felishia McPherson said that while she has a master's degree in counseling, there is a difference in how she relates to those in recovery because she can share her own experiences. McPherson started as a certified peer support specialist at Wellness City and is now the community support liaison for The Durham Center.
The North Carolina Certified Peer Support Specialist Credentialing Program is administered through UNC, where Mangum is a clinical assistant professor in the Behavioral Healthcare Resource Program at the UNC School of Social Work.
Mangum said the peer support approach to recovery is modeled after Alcoholics Anonymous sponsorship, but rather than it being a hierarchy, specialists are side by side, walking with the person.
