Peer-to-Peer is a unique, experiential learning program for people with any mental illness who are interested in establishing and maintaining their wellness and recovery.  Peer-to-Peer consists of ten 2-hour units and is taught by a team of two trained "Mentors" and one Volunteer who are personally experienced at living well with mental illness.

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.

WHERE:    NAMI Greater Milwaukee, 3732 W. Wisconsin Ave.; enter behind the building by the parking lot, walk down a half-flight of stairs and ring the bell.

HOW:        Call 414-344-0447 to register, or email shirleyd@namigrm.org. Classes are offered when there have been enough requests (minimum 10).
