Spring sessions of NAMI’s programs return

NAMI of Erie County’s programs are unique because they are peer-led by trained volunteers. These programs bring empathy, support, and education to individuals searching for hope. NAMI of Erie County is hosting two programs this spring, Family-to-Family, a family education program, and Peer-to-Peer, a recovery education and workforce development program.

Family-to-Family is a free, 12-week educational course for family members and caregivers who have a loved one facing mental health challenges. The program will start this spring on March 1st. Many graduates say their experience in the program is “life-changing.”

Peer-to-Peer is a free, 10-week educational program for adults with mental illness, who are looking to better understand mental wellness and their journey toward recovery. This spring’s session will begin on March 7th. Participants will learn communication skills, a general understanding of mental health, and workforce development skills.

No formal diagnosis is required to attend either program. Programs will be held at the NAMI of Erie County Office, 1611 Peach Street, suite 218. Registration is required, and participants must be at least 18 years of age. Please call the NAMI office at (814) 456-1773, or visit NAMIerie.org/application to apply today!
