Connection Support Group Facilitator Training & NAMI Provider Teacher Training

By Laurie Emerson  |  April 23, 2021  |  Home

NAMI Connection Peer Support Group Facilitator training is taking place online, June 4th – June 6th. NAMI Provider Teacher training is taking place online, June 12th – 13th.

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.

The NAMI Provider course offers in-service training to line staff at mental health agencies and other organizations who work directly with individuals who are affected by a mental health condition. The teaching team consists of three to five members that include family members, individuals living with a mental health condition, and a mental health provider who is either a family member or individual in recovery. Teachers follow a scripted curriculum and contribute their their personal experience to enhance clinicians’ understanding of mental health in Vermont.

Who Should Train: Clinicians, Family Members, and Peers are needed for this program!
