Peer-to-Peer is a unique, experiential learning program for people with any serious mental illness who are interested in establishing and maintaining their wellness and recovery. Peer-to-Peer consists of eight two-hour units and is taught by a team of two trained "Leaders" and a volunteer support person who are personally experienced at living well with mental illness.
Leaders are trained in an intensive two day training session and are supplied with teaching manuals.
Participants come away from the course with a binder of hand-out materials, as well as many other tangible resources: an advance directive; a "relapse prevention plan" to help identify tell-tale feelings, thoughts, behavior or events that may warn of impending relapse and to organize for intervention; mindfulness exercises to help focus and calm thinking; and survival skills for working with providers and the general public.
The next Peer to Peer training will be on 2/9/20-3/29/20 from 5-7 pm. Please contact Marie for more details at (303) 641-1363.
