What is the Peer-to-Peer Program?
8-week course led by trained PEER leaders, people who have experienced
mental illness in their own lives and believe that mental health recovery and resiliency are
possible. This class focuses on offering information, encouragement, hope, and guidance to
adults who live with a mental illness and want to experience quality of life as contributing
members of their communities.
The two -day weekend in-person leader training includes preparation for teaching the P2P
course, obtaining knowledge about the brain, research, and recovery, fostering respect
and mutual support, and developing skills in sharing brief individual stories and partnering
with other peers.
NAMI Washington will pay for meals, snacks, lodging and all training materials.
Your NAMI affiliate is asked to cover your travel and other expenses that you may incur to
attend this training. Lodging will be at a nearby hotel, and is double occupancy. If you
require single occupancy, arrangements will need to be made prior to attendance by the
attendee and there will be additional costs which will be the responsibility of the attendee.
In order to reserve a space a $50 refundable registration deposit from your affiliate is
required at the time of registration.
If you need to cancel after being accepted, notify
the NAMI Washington staff, no later than a week before the training so we can fill your spot,
or your affiliate will lose its $50 registration deposit.
Cancelled spots are filled with applications from the waiting list for the class, not by
sending another affiliate member.
