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.
