    As a mental health consumer I've been struggling my whole life to be productive. I've worked as a warm line counselor http://www.mhah.org/Programs/CE.html

    and I keep looking for things I can do, especially now at this point in my life.

    It's hard to find direction, often times like my social worker doesn't lead me to what I need.

    How do you find what you want? Try try and try.

    Do you have any input on sources for being productive, besides writing, ?

    ...hmmmm....well, the social worker may/may not have experience with employment opportunities - opportunities that are 'outside of the box' of a consumer.  what about accessing an employment counsellor who does not necessarily focus on mental health clients...but all clients...and or seeking out various training opportunities.  i'm hoping that if you are accessing a disability pension of some type or another, that you may have access to groups that train folks for work/volunteer in various settings (at no cost to you).  You may find something that sparks your interest for the long term.  Sometimes those folks who specialize in training also specialize in rehab programs and thus, will guide you and support you in eventually securing that volunteer or paid work.  There should/may be many opportunities to work within the mental health system as well - like helping people navigate the system.

    That's true social worker do not have any experience of any employments. But they have a good knowledge. They can achieve good opportunities also.

      Alot of social workers are not good at helping, or they can't or don't find you what you need, but you keep trying.
