Peer-to-Peer Recovery Education

Peer-to-Peer is a unique, experiential learning program for people with serious mental illness who are interested in establishing and maintaining their wellness and recovery. It consists of eight two-hour sessions over eight weeks and is taught by a team of trained Program Leaders and a volunteer support person who are all personally experienced at living well with mental illness. Participants come away from the course with a binder of reference materials, as well as other tangible resources:

  • Advance Directive – a document with your personal wishes for what to do in the event of severe symptoms or hospitalization
  • “Relapse prevention plan” to help identify early symptoms, 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
