Peers (Persons in Recovery) may struggle with self-esteem and confidence issues, which may encourage them to seek and depend a lot on others for validation. In line with this year's International Women's Day theme, "Inspire Inclusion", understand what dependency on validation can look like and explore how it relates to mental health and self-perception. Learn what the actionable methods are in helping to cultivate self-validation and empower others to do the same.
