How does someone/s bring forth their idea/s to the program/s that they are already into expand/ing and improve/ment/s it/them – Emotional Health Question


Just wondering because I’m in this particular situation. With a program that I just started, this past wk and now I’m 2nd thoughts about being in it.

This was originally an questioned and answered that I did on one of the many sites that I belong. Pretty much the same as well, but added some things to the top of it.

Its from couple of wks back and couple of days after I started that program. At the same time never intended to share besides there. But I changed my mind about it, today. Its based on how my morning went, this morning. Basically, its a combination of things that happened before, in between, just about before to go. Was suppose to take public transportation for special needs for the 1st time since getting approved for it. I’m still trying to get over both of my mom (7 1/2 mos ago) and one of my next door neighbors’ (couple of days prior to starting the program) deaths from their cancer battles. At the same time also dealing with changing of the seasons and my own issues with both depression/anxiety.

Just wondering because I’m in this particular situation. With a program that I just started, this past wk and now I’m 2nd thoughts about being in it. Basically, its program geared to people with dual diagnoses. I mean its for people that are like me that are have disabilite/s, depression, anxiety, maybe other mental illness/es as well. Of course I forgot already about the other/s now. I feel that I’m only the more mature one in the group while others that are in it childish/babyish. At the same time its a non profit, but also funded by DDD (Division of Developmental Disabilities) and etc. Now, just wish that it/they can also provide additional service/s like beyond alternative/s. Like Camphill Association of North America does.

Thats totally an independent non-profit and in which about it in a paper that subscribed to, awhile back.

Thank you, again for your answer to my question here. Hmm interesting because here I thought that your answer would be the opposite of it. Guess, I was wrong about it. I do plan on giving it more time before moving on because theres some that I can relate more then others. Theres not so much in my area regarding these kind of programs offering beyond alternative/s that I’m seeking. In meantime I do need a day program to keep me occupied because either my family and/or me had no such luck keeping myself occupied. It also includes an other day program that I tried after my 1st to 3rd hospitalizations, but in the it was figured it wasn’t for me by all of the staff, my family, and others. It was only for one diagnose/s regarding depression, anxiety, and/or other mental illness/es as well. In which had no luck in finding other one that fits my needs until this came along. After, 4th to 7th hospitalizations and it came with glowing reviews during 7th one. Especially, one of the social workers there worked there as assistant director of the program until she went into the hospital. At first when both my twin sister, me had the initial meeting, and intake interview was perfect. Until I started it and it also coincided during my period and etc. Plus, this day program also the offers going into the beyond community, vocational training.
