Peer-to-Peer

NAMI_Peer2

Peer-to-Peer is a FREE 10-week recovery education course that offers a holistic approach to recovery. This course allows individuals diagnosed with a mental illness to share experiences and gain further insight into their mental health. 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. Graduates of this course experience new hope and inspiration in regards to recovery.

 

Peer-to-Peer is taught by a team of two trained “Mentors” who are personally experienced at living well with mental illness. This program offers a relaxed and confidential setting.

 

The outcomes of the Peer-to-Peer program include:

  • Participants share experiences with other peers who are also working towards recovery.
  • Gain further insight into mental health.
  • Gain knowledge of how to cope with difficult circumstances.
  • Learn to identify feelings, thoughts, behaviors and events that can result in a possible relapse.
  • Learn how to be an active participant in your treatment plan.
  • Learn how to strengthen interpersonal relationships.
  • Experience new hope and inspiration in regard to recovery.
