NAMI of Wood County Offers FREE Peer-to-Peer Classes

Mental illness is common; one in four American families has a member living with it. Despite the numbers, however, people struggling with these disorders can feel isolated. Friends and even family may not understand their symptoms, and the stigma that still haunts mental illness sometimes prevents sufferers from seeking help. But people living with mental illness can provide crucial help to each other.

That’s the rationale behind Peer-to-Peer, a free class offered by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) of Wood County. The class–used all over the country—is designed and facilitated by people recovering from mental illness.  It teaches adults (eighteen and over) about mental illness’ symptoms and treatments, presents up-to-date research on brain biology, and gives them tools for interacting with health care providers. Participants also develop a personal relapse prevention plan and skills for making decisions and reducing stress.  The next Peer-to-Peer class begins September 13 and meets for five weeks each Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 to 6:00 PM at NAMI Wood County’s offices at 541 West Wooster Street in Bowling Green.  For more information or to register call NAMI Wood County at 419-352-0626 or go online at www.namiwoodcounty.org.

One of over 1,100 affiliates nationwide, NAMI Wood County has provided education, advocacy, and support for families affected by mental illness since 1987.
