You are now a young adult. You know where you came from. You know what your story is. But can you tell it?
Minors in residential placement research center has started a blog where you can tell your story.
A stay in a residential setting has its positive and negative sides. You meet a lot of people you would never have met if you had remained at home. Being a part of a peer group 24/7 in a restricted environment means that there is a price to pay. You know that you in order to survive have to fit in. You have to remove some of the personality which makes you an individual.
Then there of course are the rules of residential facility. They can be tough, they can be relaxed. Some of the rules were hard to justify. The reason for them may have been impossible to live under. Some made sense now where you are able to look back at them.
How did the stay impact you? Did it open some doors or did it close some? Does your family understand what you went through?
The Swedish organization want to hear your story and they want you to write one of their representatives on this address: jonase(a)mail-online.dk
