I got this message today and thought it was worth sharing with my Florida readers, and peers.
Dear Teachers, Facilitators, Mentors, and others,
This is just an appreciation letter. We are all doing more with less, and many of you are so over-stretched. You have demanding jobs plus your personal mission with NAMI work, as well as family members at home with illnesses and other life issues. I just want to take a moment to acknowledge that I recognize this. In spite of all your demands, everyone clearly tries to get reports in correctly and on time and you always apologize if you happen to be late.
I just want to say that I appreciate you and I know everyone tries to do their best. You do a great job. You who teach and lead our courses/groups are giving of yourselves in such a special way. I honor you and your commitment to others. Thank you.
Carol Weber, Program Director
Survey: How Do Peers and Peer-Run Organizations Use Social Media and Online Tools?
This short survey is designed to help NEC gain an understanding of how peers and peer-run organizations are using social media and online tools. NEC will also use this information to get a sense of how to best help meet technical assistance needs in this area among peers and peer-run organizations. This survey should only take 5-10 minutes of your time.

Your response by August 10 is appreciated. Thank you so much for your time!
