These results allow a deeper look into how peer support services may aid individuals in recovery and what types of recovery may be accessible through PSIs.

“Peer support involves a mutual exchange of practical and emotional support, based on ‘shared understanding, respect, and mutual empowerment between people in similar situations with critical ingredients such as shared responsibility, hope, self-determination over one’s life, and the use of lived experience knowledge,” write the authors, led by Dorien Smit, a researcher at Radboud University and Pro Persona GGz.

Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
