If you are the parent, sibling, child, friend, significant other or relative of someone with a severe mental illness,
the NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program can help.
Family-to-Family is a 12-week course that focuses on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression,
panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, co-occurring mental illness, addictive disorders, and
borderline personality disorder.
The course discusses the clinical treatment of these illnesses and provides the knowledge and skills that
family members need to cope more effectively. Participants learn about handling crises and relapses;
communication techniques; problem solving and limit setting; stress reduction; medications; community
services and support; as well as advocacy. The program is designed for family members, rather than the
individuals diagnosed with a major mental illness themselves.
The course and its materials are provided at no cost to participants. Each class is limited to 25 participants,
and advance registration is required. The classes run once a week on a Saturday for 11 weeks. Participants
must be 18 of age or older, but may be supporting an individual of any age.
Saturday, September 1st starting at 10:00 a.m. Class runs between 2 and 3 hours
