NAMI Ohio is excited to introduce you to our new learning community for professional development, NAMI Ohio FPS ProNet. Our community is designed to provide a platform for Family Peer Supporters and system partners to share their knowledge, learn from each other, and grow together.

Our community will meet on the 4th Friday of each month. The first meeting will offer technical assistance on recertification.  The Zoom link will be available on Basecamp.

This community is open to any Family Peer Supporter (and others interested in family support) and are passionate about learning and development. This is a safe space to share our knowledge and experiences to create a supportive and collaborative environment that fosters growth and development.

NAMI Ohio will strive to highlight a wide range of resources available to Family Peer Supporters, including online courses, webinars, and workshops. The community will also be a great place to network with other Family Peer Supporters and to stay up to date with the latest trends and best practices.

Participants in the learning community will be eligible for a Certificate of Participation which can be used towards your Ohio Family Peer Support recertification.

Join our community and become a part of this exciting new initiative.
