NAMI Family & Friends is a 4-hour seminar that informs and supports people who have loved ones with a mental health condition. Participants learn about diagnoses, treatment, recovery, communication strategies, crisis preparation and NAMI resources. Seminar leaders have personal experience with mental health conditions in their families.
This seminar provides participants with the opportunity to learn about mental health directly from the families of people with a mental health condition. Audiences are also able to ask people with lived experience questions directly. In addition, by engaging in a discussion about mental health among their peers, families and friends realize they’re not alone.
NAMI Family & Friends is designed for family and friends age 18 years or older who have loved ones with a mental illness. Youth ages 14 and older may also attend provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Peer to Peer is a free ten-week “education for recovery” course for individuals with persistent mental health issues. Taught by trained mentors who are themselves in recovery, the course provides insights into the nature of various psychiatric conditions, helps participants better recognize symptoms and triggers, and aids in developing strategies to prevent or minimize relapse.
If you are interested in our Fall 2018 “Peer to Peer” class, please call us at 880-1013 and we will put you on our pre-registration list.
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.
In 2019, we will be offering Family to Family on Tuesday evenings (6:30 to 9:00) beginning September 10 Class space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, please call Bev at 542-0236.
In Our Own Voice is a one-hour presentation offered free to interested community groups. Two trained presenters discuss their experiences living with, and recovering from, mental illness; a brief DVD is also included. Educational and inspirational, personal and intimate, In Our Own Voice presentations are one of NAMI’s best tools for combating stigma and stereotypes about mental illness. Call us at 880-1013 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a presentation to your group or organization.
