NAMI/PBC Peer-to-Peer Course is a free transformational 10-week course which allows peers to learn from other peers in a class/interactive setting. It provides cutting-edge information about mental illnesses and brain chemistry, stress reduction, relapse prevention and advance directives for hospitals.
Participants come away from the course with a binder of hand-out materials, as well as many other tangible resources: an advance directive; a “relapse prevention plan” to help identify 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.
For more information, please contact our office at 561 588-3477. This course is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of Children & Families, the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network and the Hugoton Foundation.
