    Could you please tell me what the French equivalent of "peer support model of management" would be? It is found in the following context: "on-site 8 bed group home for psychiatric consumers following a peer support model of management". Thank you.

    ? Is that a joke ?

    un traitement (???) consistant à vivre en équipe non hiérarchisée et à pratiquer le soutien mutuel ????

    Ces psychiatric consumers me laissent pantois.

    My try....
    "Sur place, un foyer pour 8, pour les patients psychiatriques suivant un modèle (de gestion) basé sur le soutien mutuel" :confused:

    Not a joke, XAV. Some Countries are not as backward as...others. Ahem. Support groups are hot in some parts of the world.

    Soutien émotionnel

    Is gestion used to refer to the management of a medical case? That is, model of management refers here to a style of treatment rather than an administrative kind of thing. It could very well be right, I just wanted to check.
    Une suivie comes to mind, but I'm not sure whether it fits either.

    it depends
    je pense que gestion peut passer dans ce cas aussi,
    les medecins du travail nous parlent bien de gestion du stress, et les psy de gerer nos émotions...:rolleyes:

    Je n'ai rien contre l'idée, c'est le langage qui me paraît comique :
    ce "modèle de management" de "clients psychotiques"...!

    "Gestion" appears in many different areas as a meaning of management; not only medical, but in finance, computers, etc.

    xav - psychiatric does not necessarily mean psychotic! I think it means that there are support groups, not just individual treatments (I'm thinking of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" with shock treatment, heavy meds, etc.!) I don't think it means that the patients are running the mental health facility, just that they're all being treated & housed together.

    "Peer support" refers to the support that people with similar experiences and health issues provide for one another. It is not used exclusively within the context of mental health, but it has emerged in that area as a particularly effective way to assist people with mental health issues. It does not mean that people with mental health issues are all being "treated and housed together". It means that people are empowered to support one another rather than only being "treated" by "professionals".
