Peer to Peer is a free ten-week “education for recovery” course for individuals with persistent mental health issues. Taught by trained mentors who are themselves in recovery, the course provides insights into the nature of various psychiatric conditions, helps participants better recognize symptoms and triggers, and aids in developing strategies to prevent or minimize relapse.
If you are interested in our Fall 2018 “Peer to Peer” class, please call us at 880-1013 and we will put you on our pre-registration list.
Family to Family is a free twelve-week course designed to educate and support family members, loved ones, and caregivers of individuals with mental illness. Classes are taught by two trained facilitators who have lived the experience of dealing with a family member’s mental illness; the course offers a wealth of information and coping strategies and helps combat the isolation and helplessness families so often feel around this issue.
In 2018, we will be offering Family to Family on Tuesday evenings (6:30 to 9:00) beginning September 4. Class space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, please call Bev at 542-0236.
In Our Own Voice is a one-hour presentation offered free to interested community groups. Two trained presenters discuss their experiences living with, and recovering from, mental illness; a brief DVD is also included. Educational and inspirational, personal and intimate, In Our Own Voice presentations are one of NAMI’s best tools for combating stigma and stereotypes about mental illness. Call us at 880-1013 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a presentation to your group or organization.
