Beginning Wednesday, January 17th, NAMI Missoula offers a new weekly group: “Managing Your Life” is for adults living with mental health issues who want to develop their coping skills, increase their self-awareness, identify their values, set realistic goals, make better decisions, improve their quality of life, and gain a better sense of agency and purpose. The group will meet Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon at 202 Brooks, Room 208; it’s free and confidential, and no registration is required. Please call 880-1013 if you have any questions.

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.

Individuals wishing to be put on the waiting list for our Fall 2018 course can call us at 880-1013.

NAMI Crafts is 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.

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 namimissoula@gmail.com to arrange a presentation to your group or organization.
