Peer to Peer provides an educational setting focused on recovery that offers respect, understanding, encouragement and hope. The NAMI Peer to Peer education program is an 8 session course held once a week for (2 hours) and taught by trained Mentors living in recovery themselves. Peer to Peer emphasizes that recovery from mental illness is a feasible and supportable goal. The course is a great resource for information on Mental Health Challenges, recovery, coping skills and relapse prevention.

Peer-to-Peer Education

Peer-To-Peer is an 8 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.
