NAMI Wisconsin Peer Support Group

*Group meetings are on hold at this time*

NAMI Wisconsin Peer Support Group offers peer support in a safe and caring environment. Each support group is led by trained facilitators who have moved forward in their recovery journey with the support of their peers. The group begins with a one-minute introduction from each participant and the facilitators, moves into a 15-30 minute educational discussion, and then on to open discussion to address the specific needs of the group. Every group ends with a 5-minute activity that focuses on strength and recovery.

This model was developed by people living in recovery themselves. It relies heavily on the strengths of the facilitators and the group participants and less on the rigid structure of other support group models.
