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.

Our Fall 2017 “Family to Family” class began on Tuesday, September 5; registration is now closed. Individuals wishing to be put on the waiting list for future classes can call us at 880-1013.

NAMI Crafts is a brand-new group for adults with mental illness who want to combine hands-on creativity with informal socializing.  This is not an “art therapy” group; it’s simply a chance to have fun and to express yourself! NAMI Crafts meets on Wednesdays from 2:00 to 3:30 at 202 Brooks, Room 210 (St. Paul Lutheran Church); there’s no need to register, and interested individuals can just show up for the class.  Like all our programs, NAMI Crafts is free; call 880-1013 if you have any questions.
