Specific NAMI initiatives developed to help the process of recovery are:
The Peer-to-Peer Recovery Education Course: a 9-week, experiential, illness management and wellness educational course taught by people in recovery, for people living with mental illness.
In Our Own Voice: a public awareness project built around a one-hour presentation by a person living with mental illness. An 11-minute video frames the presentation around dark days, acceptance, treatment and medications, and hopes and dreams.
NAMI Connection Support Group : a weekly support group for individuals living with mental illness facilitated by people in recovery.
