Peer-to-Peer is a unique, experiential learning program for adults (18+) with any mental illness who are interested in relapse prevention and establishing and maintaining wellness.
Peer-to-Peer consists of ten 2-hour classes and is taught by a team of two trained “Mentors” who are personally experienced at living well with mental illness. The program includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises in a confidential environment of sincere, uncritical acceptance. Participants come away from the course with:
- A binder of hand-out materials and other resources
- A “relapse prevention plan” to help identify tell-tale feelings, thoughts, behaviors, or events that may warn of impending relapse and ways to organize for intervention
- Mindfulness exercises to help focus and calm thinking
- An advance directive, and
- Survival skills for working with healthcare providers and the general public.
This highly sought after course is ABSOLUTELY FREE, but teachers ask that participants commit to attending all 10 evening classes (6:30-8:30pm) each week for 10 weeks.
