DOVE Support Ministry Inc became a dream to the founder Nancy Garner after a hospital stay in 2011. As a result of the staff telling her she had helped another patient (a peer) by telling them her recovery story. After Nancy gave her testimony to The Women of the Living Word Bible study in January 2012, the dream started forming more clearly. In April, after support and sponsorship by friends, church family members and prayers, Nancy was selected for training by ASPIN in Indianopolis Indiana passing and receiving her certification in July, 2012.
Nancy now completed training in eCPR, emotional CPR and train the trainer used in emotional crisis situations. We were taught to connect to the person in crisis by heart to heart connection. She is now waiting to be apprendiceship opportunities to assist in training others and eventually be a facilitator. In 2015 she became trained in WRAP, wellness recovery action plan and will now have WRAP workshops.
Nancy also has training in WHAM, whole health action managment where the whole person is considered and mind and body connection.
Nancy is now open for employment as a certified recovery or peer specialist in the state of Indiana and APSS in Kentucky.
