  • Iowa Peer & Family Peer Support Training Program: Please visit http://www.iowapeersupporttraining.org for upcoming training for Peer Support Specialists and Family Peer Support Specialists.
  • NAMI Peer Connections Training:  We have an upcoming training for NAMI Peer Connection and need your help to find qualified volunteers. This training is to become a leader of a peer based support group that we will implement in communities throughout the region. The training is Saturday March 9th and Sunday March 10th from 8:30 AM to 6:00 PM both days. Class is planned to be held in Council Bluffs. The training is evidence based and will prepare volunteers to co-lead support groups. Our ideal facilitator will be an adult with mental illness living in recovery and be willing to serve by leading. We need volunteers from all over the region and cannot succeed without your help! More info can be found at our website on the national NAMI website or by looking on youtube under “NAMI Connections”. Attached are several formats to help get the word out, please spread the word. Alex Burton, Director
