Frequently Asked Questions
WHO IS TEACHES PEER TO PEER?
Classes are taught by two trained teachers who live with mental health conditions themselves. They have first hand experience using the skills covered in class and draw from their own experiences when
teaching. As a result, classes are truly peer spaces where everyone understands what it is like to live with a mental health condition.
ARE THERE REQUIREMENTS OR COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH PEER TO PEER?
Our classes are 100% free. Participants must commit to attending 8-weeks of class and doing
3 hours of weekly homework. No prior knowledge or formal diagnosis is necessary though participants must identify as someone living with a mental health condition. Currently, classes are held online so access to WiFi during class hours is necessary. If you are unable to access WiFI, let us know so
that we can try to accommodate you in the future. Participants must be at least 18 years old.
The only required materials are a pen and a notebook. If necessary, we can help provide these if needed
