NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a free, eight-session educational program for adults with mental health conditions who are looking to better understand themselves and their recovery.
Taught by trained leaders with lived experience, this program includes activities, discussions and informative videos. However, as with all NAMI programs, it does not include recommendations for treatment approaches.

Participants come away from the course with:
A binder of hand-out materials, as well as many other tangible resources;
An advance directive;
A “relapse prevention plan” to help identify tell-tale feelings, thoughts, behavior, or events that may warn of impending relapse and to organize for intervention;
Mindfulness exercises to help focus and calm thinking; and
Survival skills for working with providers and the general public.
