Support Group for Peer Program Leaders

Facilitating a Connection Group or teaching a Peer-to-Peer class can be tough. Some days are better than others. Are you:

  • Dealing with difficult participants
  • Feeling overwhelmed by other’s stories
  • Unable to decompress
  • Thinking of quitting
  • Losing members
  • Confused by materials
  • In need of inspiration
  • Feeling that you’re not making a difference (you are!)

Burnout is real. NAMI Massachusetts here to support you. Announcing support for NAMI Connection support group facilitators and Peer-to-Peer teachers.

Support groups will meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays and the 2nd Saturday of the month on zoom. Open to current and returning facilitators and teachers. Contact Judi Maguire at for more information.
