Peer to Peer
Due to corona virus risk, most NAMI in-person groups and classes will be canceled. Please call the contact number for your affiliate to determine what alternatives may be offered in your area.
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 2 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.
