Inspiring Minds is designed as a peer-to-peer program, meaning peer volunteers and peer support specialists are trained to present the course in their local areas or agencies. This 2-day training leads to certification as an Inspiring Minds Guide. Training hours are from 9am-4:30pm, with breaks, on both Friday & Saturday. We'll talk about group process, speaking skills, and go over the presentation guides for the 10 modules. We'll talk about the importance of fidelity to the course, as well as tips on outreach to build awareness and attendance for future classes.


IMPORTANT: Each trainee must have attended the required Inspiring Minds modules prior to the Guide training. They are: Module 1: Communication, Module 2: Boundaries, Module 3: Self-Esteem, Module 9: Mindfulness, and Module 10: Changing Negative Thinking. All 5 classes will be held prior to the Guide training, and you may register for any or all of them here:   IM Required Classes
