Peer-to-Peer is a unique, experiential learning program for people with any serious mental illness who are interested in establishing and maintaining their wellness and recovery.

Peer-to-Peer consists of ten two-hour units and is taught by a team of two trained mentors and a volunteer support person who are personally experienced at living well with mental illness. The mentors are trained in an intensive three-day training session and are supplied with teaching manuals.

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.
