By taking this course, I have met others who are going through the same things I am and have learned about many resources that I never knew existed."

PEER TO PEER website: nami.org/peertopeer

For consumers (people living with a mental illness) 10-week course Disponible en Español "Peer-to-Peer has allowed me to take the focus off my illness and learn to balance it with the rest of my life. By engaging in recovery I am able to be more relaxed and productive both at work and home."
