Peer-To-Peer

NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a 10-week recovery-focused educational program for adults who wish to establish and maintain wellness in response to mental health challenges. The course provides critical information and strategies related to living with mental illness. The class is taught by ‘Mentors’ who are trained by NAMI. Great value is placed on the individual experiences of each person in the class and participants are empowered and invited to share their own stories, coping tools that they have used and to comment on the information provided.

Incorporating presentations, discussion and exercises, this program provides a solid foundation for the recovery process. Peer-to-Peer gives participants a varied selection of tools and strategies designed to improve decision making skills, identify and overcome triggers and recognize the impact of emotions on actions.
