The NAMI Wisconsin Peer Leadership Council was created in 2003 with the support of the NAMI Wisconsin Board of Directors and the staff of NAMI Wisconsin. The NAMI Wisconsin Peer Leadership Council is a committee of the NAMI Wisconsin Board of Directors, providing meaningful input to the NAMI Wisconsin community.

The members of the NAMI Wisconsin Peer Leadership Council are dedicated to the mission and goals that have been developed since its inception.

One goal of the NAMI Wisconsin Peer Leadership Council is leadership development. As the Peer Leadership Council begins to create a vision for itself, and implement plans of action, members of the Council learn how to exercise supportive leadership and consensus-building techniques.

The NAMI Wisconsin Peer Leadership Council enhances NAMI Wisconsin's efforts toward supporting Recovery and creating meaningful participation for all NAMI Wisconsin consumers.

We ask all members of NAMI Wisconsin to support the ongoing efforts of the NAMI Wisconsin Peer Leadership Council.

I discovered NAMI when I began to get my life back. NAMI played an extremely important role in my recovery. The Peer Leadership Council was a way to not only give back to NAMI but also to make sure that our voices, as consumers, are heard!
