UPDATE: Sound Times seeks additional Community Service Interns
Several Positions Available
20 Hours Per Week, One Year Paid Internship
Afternoon and Evening Shifts Required
Locations: 280 Parliament Street, Toronto
2340 Dundas Street West, Toronto

Sound Times is funded by the Toronto Central LHIN to provide individual supports, social support, educational, occupational and recreational opportunities, as well as advocating for members to get connected to community resources. As a peer initiative, all services are provided by individuals who use, or have used, the mental health system.
We are expanding our staff group to include multiple members committed to completing a year-long intensive internship. The goal of this internship is to acquire the skills, education and understanding necessary to seek employment, with organizations affirming the value of lived experience for frontline social service work.
Interns selected for these positions will:
• Participate in the ongoing process of training and education in peer-based engagement and community-building, acquiring the skills needed for full participation in providing services and supports as working members of the peer support/self-help team.
• Acquire working knowledge of available community resources relevant to the needs of the membership.
• Work “on the floor” with existing staff during afternoon and evening hours, benefiting from on-the-job learning opportunities that arise as a part of the expansion of service hours into the evening.
• Participate in individual supervision, targeted toward making the connection between education and skill-building in providing support oriented to recovery/empowerment, and the experiences gained in meeting the needs of service users in a peer-delivered service environment.
• Lived experience of /contact with the mental health system, and membership in good standing at Sound Times.
• A commitment to working with a team dedicated to innovative approaches to service and support for the consumer/survivor community at Sound Times.
• Previous experience working/volunteering in a social service setting an asset.

Members interested in applying should submit a resume (if available) to Steve Carroll ([email protected]) or Nick Harrilall ([email protected]).
Applicants lacking a resume should apply by means of a written submission outlining why they are an ideal candidate for this opportunity. Please note that the deadline for applications is 5 PM Friday, June 6/14.

Not all members applying will be selected for interview.

I Am Alive - Mad In America

This — this moment — is a gift, just as every moment of my post-Psychiatry life is, and I view it as a second chance, this life I’m living on borrowed time. This is why I’ll be protesting the APA, because Psychiatry took me as far from this life as I could possibly have gone, and its my duty to use…

We're not asking for a handout, from the charitable donations unto Mental Health and Addictions. What we're looking for, in Mental Health and Addictions, is Income Generation Projects and Drop in and Work Programs, as Social Enterprises, for the Consumer Survivors, as program projects and proposals of solutions for this City. I suggest A Conversation Recording Lounge-"The Spoke", A Salad Bar on the street-"The Tear Drop Salad Cart", A Public Greenhouse-"Leaves and Stems", and a Designer Fabric Seat Cover for Car Company- "Threads and Treads". Each Drop in program project, should be open 24/7, and should be made out of existing Drop in programs. This will require 'free paid training for a skill or trade', to run the Drop in overnight, provided to those applicants who were, previously, a regular client of those Drop in programs. In this way, the paid training will be to the benefit of the program's regular clients first as an internship, paid for by charitable donations unto the program. The other clients too can fund raise for their Social Enterprises, as a paid position with the Drop in. In these Income Generation Projects, we will be paid at the site of completed work, and, at the purchasing of the constructed product. In the middle of the month, we will divide the remaining profits equally amoungst the community members as community shareholders. To build it and run it, we will use my practicum of equal representation: Unicomuni-onemanyone- mergeing all ideas of all one shareholder unto one idea for all shareholders merged as one. I'm thinking of Sistering, Sound Times, The Parkdale Activity and Recreation Centre, The Meeting Place, Meserik Cowan, The 519, The Reference Library...and on...please email [email protected] Shannon Hardie
