NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a free, 8-session 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

Volunteering as a NAMI Peer-to-Peer Facilitator

NAMI Peer-to-Peer classes are taught by two NAMI-trained teachers who are living with a mental health condition. The training involves a 3-5 hours online session, as well as a 2-day classroom component. A one-year commitment is requested for all new teachers.

Have you previously taken the Peer-to-Peer class interested in becoming a teacher? Learn more about volunteering as a Peer-to-Peer teacher.
