Peer-to-Peer is a free 10-class recovery education course that offers a holistic approach to recovery. This course allows individuals diagnosed with a mental illness to share experiences and gain further insight into their mental health.
Family members learn self-care, problem-solving skills, and communications skills, which can later be taught to the entire family unit. Many graduates of the program called it “life-changing” as they develop friendships with others in similar situations.
