Peer-to-Peer Education

Peer-To-Peer is a 10 week series of classes that help clients along the path to recovery. People who attend report a greater understanding of their diagnosis, and a bond with others in the class. The classes are small, and are a safe place to share and learn. The emphasis is on relapse prevention and psycho-social supports. The ultimate goal is for recovery and self-advocacy. The course was written by a client, and all classes are led by clients.
