About this event

NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a free, 8-session course for adults living with mental health challenges. The course provides an educational setting focused on recovery that offers respect, understanding, encouragement and hope. The course is taught by Peer Leaders who are devoted to helping others overcome the challenges of life with a mental health condition, and know what it is like to live with a mental health challenge. Recovery is different for each person, but the need for support on the journey is universal. The program is a peer-directed program because we believe that no one can teach about mental health recovery like someone who has lived it. This course is not a map or instruction manual for life with a mental health condition. It is a valuable resource that helps participants uncover what living well looks like for them. With new knowledge, tools and support, people can better take charge of their lives and choices.

The NAMI Peer-to-Peer education program is:

  • Class 1: Introduction, Mental Health and Recovery
  • Class 2: The Brain and the Body
  • Class 3: Telling Your Story
  • Class 4: Strengthening Relationships
  • Class 5: Growing Support Networks
  • Class 6: Tools for Enhancing Recovery
  • Class 7: Your Story, Your Strengths
  • Class 8: Moving Forward, Sharing, Evaluation, Certification and potluck!

When: May 8, 2021 through June 26, 2021 - Classes are held on eight (8) consecutive Saturdays from 11:30am to 2:00pm. 

Where: Zoom Online Web Platform (a link to join the virtual class will be sent to you after registering at Eventbrite)

No Cost to Attend: All materials are provided (electronic resources) via email. Certificate of completion will be mailed to the address of your choice.  

Funding for this class is provided in part by San Joaquin County Behavioral Services.
