I suffered with PP in August 2013 and it was the scariest thing I've ever experienced. However, 13 months later I applied for and was offered the job of Peer Support Worker for a Recovery College in the NHS, two days a week. I'd never worked in Mental Health before but having experienced PP I became very interested in that area and when the post came up, I had to apply. One of the requirements of the job was to have lived experience of a mental health problem so as to be able to model recovery. I just wanted to share this with you because when I was going through PP I would never have imagined that anything good could possibly come out of it. But it has and as awful an experience as it was, I wouldn't change it because I am now in a job I love and in a position to really raise awareness of PP for other women.
