PEER education programs like Strengthening Families Together, Your Recovery Journey and ongoing PEER support groups, provide individuals living with mental illness and their family members with education, support, awareness and tools.

The discussions in BOTH education programs and support groups are an opportunity for individuals to share fears, insecurities, success, approaches to problems, and to reinforce good and appropriate coping skills.

The FACILITATOR training for PEERS is suitable for Strengthening Families Together and Your Recovery Journey education program teachers who want to learn how to facilitate more meaningful discussions in their classes, and for PEERS interested in facilitating a safe and effective family or consumer support group in their community.

The regional FACILITATOR training for PEERS offers a set of key structures and group processes for facilitators to use in common group discussions. These structures come with clear guidelines to follow; used together, they encourage full and meaningful group participation.
