Keith

I have read that a hot line is required to call authorities if a person is having suicidal thoughts and that a warm line will not call authorities. is that true?
Justin Wright
01:39:32
also Jennifer, partnering with an existing warmline may be a good way to go as well.
Mandy
01:41:04
She did so good! She made them so so beautiful!

Amanda Martin
01:41:33
very cool justin
Lyn Legere
01:41:41
Hi Keith….we’re mandated by law to get someone help if they’re at “imminent” danger of hurting self or others. In peer support, we always try to spend the time with someone to help them figure out alternatives. Most of the time, it’s a crisis for the moment and spending time helps someone move away from the crisis and lets us avoid making the call.
Toni Holcombe
01:41:41
That is so awesome!
awells
01:42:04
The cards are a major part of our outreach and displays of love and concern!
Lyn Legere
01:42:14
Anna - the warm line is open to anyone who has the number. We’ve had calls from San Francisco
Keith
01:42:25
Thanks Lyn!
Amanda Martin

Darcy Quan
02:03:08
has anyone personally or does anyone know someone who has utilized the free spectrum for students? I was wondering what information they ask for to be qualified
Amanda Martin
02:04:04
I haven't Darcy but I've also heard of school buses with WIFI going to different disenfranchised neighborhoods and staying all day so that kids have access to the internet to do school work.
Lyn Legere
02:04:37
Wow….that’s so cool, Amanda
Amanda Martin
02:04:46
right?!
Kelly Lawson
02:04:51
www.needymed.com is a site I use and share with my clients to help them get either free meds or reduced cost meds
Darcy Quan
02:05:04
I was hoping that the people we support would qualify. I know they may not be not in "school" technically but they are furthering education and wellness education.
Amanda Martin
02:06:27
maybe we can call and do a dry run Darcy
Lyn Legere
02:08:20
For YEARS, we’ve argued that peer workers need to have avenues for connection with one another to brainstorm together, vent together, do better work together. Thank you Covid !!
Viyanna Langager
02:09:20
On facebook there is a group called peerpocalypse. it is a west coast deal but I find much useful information there. I moved here from Oregon so knew about it and they have had no problem with me utilizing their information

Lyn Legere
02:19:29
I don’t know a lot about the stimulus, but there is a link “Find My Payment” on the IRS page. On that page, people can provide their bank info if they’re “non-filers”. I think she would qualify for that??
Viyanna Langager
02:19:54
they do not made too much in 2019
PRN .

Anna Fiscus

Thanks Toni. Appreciate your being here.
Sharon Galusky
02:21:44
Lyn, You ran a CPSS support group at PRN. Where ideas, issues, and support were specifically around the CPSS experience. Would that be something of interest for the future
Darcy Quan
02:22:43
there is so much healing for me in writing.
Lyn Legere
