Just announced! June NAMI Connection Peer Support Group Facilitator Training

By Laurie Emerson  |  April 15, 2021  |  Home

NAMI Vermont is pleased to announce our next NAMI Connection Peer Support Group Facilitator training will be on June 4th through June 6th.

NAMI Connection facilitators are trained leaders who facilitate 90-minute Recovery Support Group meetings. Facilitators play an important role in ensuring that all participants feel welcomed and supported. NAMI facilitators are uniquely qualified to lead support groups because they have gone through their own recovery process. They empathize with, and encourage those who may be just beginning the journey.

Who Should Train: Individuals who have personal experience with mental health challenges and have reached a comfortable place in recovery. Participants should attend at least one Connection Support Group meeting and agree to adhere to the NAMI Connection Support Group model. Facilitating these groups requires patience, hard work,  and dedication–but it is definitely worth it!
