NAMI employs a person in recovery at the Crisis Stabilization Unit at David Lawrence Center to link community services and provide peer support. We know that people learn best from their peers. As with any health diagnosis, support is often sought out by others that have the same diagnosis. Having a person in recovery housed in the Crisis Stabilization Unit allows persons in crisis to immediately feel a sense of companionship and camaraderie with our Certified Peer Specialist. He also explains the system itself, resources and links to NAMI. Population served is those in the Crisis Unit.
