NAMI Peer-to-Peer is an 8-week free recovery-focused program for people who wish to establish and maintain their wellness. Taught by trained leaders with lived experience, this program includes activities, discussions, and informative videos. Great value is placed on the individual experiences of each person in the class, and participants are empowered to share their own stories and the coping tools that have worked for them.

Peer-to-Peer helps you create your own:

  • Vision Statement
  • SMART goals
  • Recovery Workbook
  • Support Networks
  • Awareness Grid
  • Crisis Plan

Please note that our Peer-to-Peer classes are currently offered virtually. We encourage you to register for the class based in your area.
