to share their experiences and gain support from other attendees.

Due to COVID-19 all groups are currently being hosted over Zoom. Still, it’s easier than ever to attend, and if you have any questions regarding how to use Zoom or other features, we are happy to help!

NAMI Arts & Crafts

Family to Family is a free twelve-week course designed to educate and support family members, loved ones, and caregivers of individuals with mental illness. Classes are taught by two trained facilitators who have lived the experience of dealing with a family member’s mental illness; the course offers a wealth of information and coping strategies and helps combat the isolation and helplessness families so often feel around this issue.

Principles Of Support

  • We will see the individual first, not the illness.
  • We recognize that mental illnesses are medical  illnesses that may have environmental triggers.
  • We understand that mental illnesses are  traumatic events.
  • We aim for better coping skills.
  • We find strength in sharing experiences.
  • We reject stigma and do not tolerate discrimination.
  • We won’t judge anyone’s pain as less than our own.
  • We forgive ourselves and reject guilt.
  • We embrace humor as healthy.
  • We accept we cannot solve all problems.
  • We expect a better future in a realistic way.
  • We will never give up hope.
