Peer-to-Peer Orientation

Hi,

Me and a peer will lead a NAMI group called Peer-to-Peer Recovery Education Course. The class is FREE open to all groups living with a mental health diagnosis. The nine-week class focuses on relapse prevention planning among several other coping strategies. Orientation is Saturday, January 23, 2010 at 2 p.m. located at 2001 Martin Luther King Drive, Atlanta, GA 30315.

The class will meet each Saturday starting January 30, 2010 and ending April 10, 2010. For more information about Peer-to-Peer call me, Ashley, at (888) 839-3191 or visit the NAMI website at www.nami.org. Oh yeah, and did I say the class is FREE!

(Note: This is not an Embracing My Mind, Inc. group. The Peer-to-Peer course is affiliated with the National Alliance on Mental Illness organization.)

To learn more information about schizophrenia visit NAMI or Schizophrenia Society of Nova Scotia (Canada).

Hi Ashley,

I took the NAMI Peer-to-Peer class here in Florida where I live, two years ago. I will also be teaching it in the future. It's a great course, and I think you will enjoy helping others by being a mentor in that class. NAMI is a wonderful organization, and I have been involved with it here for some time. I hope this is a positive addition to your life! It's also great that you have kept up your informative and wonderfully written blog for all this time, and I hope you continue to keep it going. Take care!
