NAMI Peer to Peer Classes, every Saturday in October

FREE NAMI Peer-to-Peer Education Course—Saturday, October 1 – 29, 2016
One in four families in the U.S. will be touched by a mental disorder each year. Navigating the everyday challenges of living with mental illness is the goal of NAMI Amador’s Peer to Peer educational mental health recovery course.
The free 5-week course will be held on Saturdays, beginning October 1, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at Sutter Amador Hospital’s Mountain Room, 200 Mission Blvd. in Jackson.
This program is for individuals living with mental illness and is taught by NAMI state-certified mentors who are well along in recovery. Goals are to provide education about mental illness emotional and practical support, independent problem solving and relapse prevention.
This is the 6th year NAMI Amador has been able to offer the program, so many people have benefited from learning that recovery is possible. The course is taught by two experienced mentors. Every participant receives a workbook with the latest information on mental illness research, treatment and strategies for self-management.
As with all services of NAMI Amador, the course is free to the public. Mental Health Services Act funding is provided by Amador County Behavioral Health Department. All class sessions are confidential.
Each week builds upon the last, offering a variety of tools with which to better understand and manage one’s individual life. Participants must sign up and attend all five sessions. Contact NAMIAmador at 223-1485, X266 to learn more or to leave a message to sign up.

NAMI Amador is Amador County’s chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and is a

ones. More information is available at,, or by email at
