Helping establish and maintain wellness and recovery
The NAMI Peer-to-Peer Class is a 10-session educational program for adults with diagnosed mental illness who are looking to better understand their condition and journey toward recovery.
The class is a specially tailored program of NAMI, the National Alliance of Mental Illness.
Taught by a trained team of people who've been there, the program includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises. Everything is confidential, and NAMI never recommends a specific medical therapy or treatment approach.
Peer-to-Peer helps you:
- create a personalize relapse prevention plan,
- learn how to interact with health care providers
- develop confidence for making decisions and reducing stress,
- stay up-to-date on mental health research
- understand the impact of symptoms on your life
- access practical resources on how to maintain your journey toward recovery.
