NAMI PEER-to-PEER CLASS
For people with mental illness who want to establish and maintain their wellness and recovery.
10-week course meets once a week every Thursday: Sept. 9 through Nov. 11, 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
First Congregational Church, 608 W. 4th St., Waterloo
Experienced mentors who lead the class are trained through the state office of NAMI Iowa (National Alliance on Mental Illness). Participants will receive a binder of educational material to keep and will also develop a plan to help identify feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that may warn of impending relapse. The class allows people to share with peers in order to better manage and cope, and also learn how to be active participants in their own treatment.
Registration is required; please contact the NAMI office at 235-5263 if you have questions or would like to participate.
