The NAMI Peer-to-Peer Education Course is for individuals who are living with a mental illness and are interested in establishing and maintaining wellness and recovery. The course consists of 10, two-hour sessions, and is taught by a team of two trained “mentors” and a volunteer who, themselves, have the experience of living with mental illness.
Peer-to-Peer uses a combination of lecture, interactive exercise and structured group processes, and incorporates the diverse experience of the course participants, as well. Course topics include: stigma and mental illness, taking care of yourself, coping strategies, and creating a relapse prevention plan.
There is no charge for attending and materials are also free of charge. For more information, call Danielle at (717) 848-3784, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
