Hi Dr Long!

Since both Bipolar & Administrative Private topics are locked I am hopeful you will find, read and respond to my concerns .

RE: MY THERAPY MENTORSHIP

Firstly this is an INCREDIBLY POSITIVE new feature. I am thankful to you for creating it. I look forward to mentoring MT members over a long period of time.

This of course, is wonderful for me being a "caregiver" by nature. I am so pleased to have another outlet where I can use my supportive, empathetic and life skills and experiences wth a struggling member(s).

Kudos to you Dr. Long!

I DO HAVE CONCERNS though regarding the number of posts a member has aquired to become a Mentor.

Personally, I believe the MINIMUM SHOULD BE 250+ POSTS as the criteria. This is the same number of posts needed to access the Private Boards.

Members who have attained 250+ have shown a genuine committment to active involvement, posting and contributions to My Therapy.

Because we have achieved over 250 posts, our understanding, life experiences ,mental health experiences, and maturity are drawn upon on a weekly, or daily basis.

250+ Post Members have LIVED and SURVIVED their challenges, diagnosis, treatments, family/sposal issues etc.

In other words, we have been around the block a few times WITHOUT our training wheels. Our suggestions and understanding of mental health & life issues tends to be very solid.

Perhaps a POLL is in order regarding minimum number of posts to offers Mentorship?

May I know your thoughts on my suggestions and concerns Dr. Long?

Sincerely,
Lost girl



LOST GIRL
This too shall pass.

I Agree 100% Lost Girl, But We Have A Problem ...

The Numbers Are Staggering

I agree that our Super Members+ would make the best mentors for all the excellent reasons you mention. However, we may not have enough Super Members+ to meet the demand for mentors.

We have approximately 50 Super Members+ (i.e., members that have posted more than 250 times). Yet we have approximately 9,000 members.

My worry is that the demand for mentors will soon outstrip our supply of mentors. That is why we made the requirement of needing only 100 posts before a member can be a mentor. In this way, we have approximately 100 members who then qualify to be mentors.

We Will Modify Our Mentorship Program

Although other self-help groups (like Alcoholics Anonymous) have had mentors ("sponsors") for decades; this is a new experiment for us.

That is why we need everyone's feedback on our mentorship program as it gets underway. Nothing is written in stone; Mark and I will implement whatever changes our community agrees on.

I am very excited about this new program. Once we work out the bugs in this program; its contribution to our community could be quite remarkable.

Hello,
I want to select a mentor, but there are only two members listed as possible mentors.

Is this because only two people so far have volunteered to be a mentor?

I like the new changes with the MY BLOG feature too.


Thanks,


-EA


Yes EA,

Members have to click on their "Who I Mentor" tab; then click on "To edit your mentor settings, click here."

They then can indicate how many members they are able to mentor (1, 2 or 3). Once they have indicated that they are available, their name will be shown to prospective members seeking a mentor.
