Event description

Description

Join us for this FREE 12-session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people living with mental illness. It is a designated evidenced-based program.

This course meets weekly on Monday evenings from 6:00-8:30.

Research shows that this program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with a mental health condition. NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by trained family members with lived experience.

Some topics include:

  • How to manage crises, solve problems and communicate effectively while providing compassionate support

  • Self-care and stress management

  • Up-to-date information on mental health conditions and how they affect the brain

  • Current treatment, evidence-based therapies, medications and side effects

  • The impact of mental illness on the entire family
