NAMI Programs for Peers
In any given year, 1 in 5 American adults experiences some form of mental illness in any given year. And across the population, 1 in every 25 adults is living with a serious mental health condition such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or long-term recurring major depression.
Through developing and following a treatment plan, you can dramatically reduce many of your symptoms. People with mental health conditions can and do pursue higher education, succeed in their careers, make friends and have relationships.
NAMI offers support groups, classes and presentations for peers, led by peers.
- NAMI Peer-to-Peer is a free recovery education course open to anyone experiencing a mental health challenge. The course is designed to encourage growth, healing and recovery among participants.
- NAMI Connection is a free weekly or monthly support group for people living with a mental health condition.
- In Our Own Voice is a presentation that can change attitudes, assumptions and stereotypes by describing the reality of living with mental illness. People with mental health conditions share their powerful personal stories in this free, 60- or 90-minute presentation.
