NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 12-session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people living with mental illness. It is a designated evidenced-based program. Research shows that the program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with a mental health condition.

 

Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there, and includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises.

 

What You'll Gain

 

NAMI Family-to-Family not only provides critical information and strategies for taking care of the person you love, but you'll also find out that you're not alone. Recovery is a journey, and there is hope.

 

The group setting of NAMI Family-to-Family provides mutual support and shared positive impact—you can experience compassion and reinforcement from people who understand your situation. You can also help others through your own experience. In the program, you'll learn about:

 

  • How to manage crises, solve problems and communicate effectively
  • Taking care of yourself and managing your stress
  • Developing the confidence and stamina to provide support with compassion
  • Finding and using local supports and services
  • Up-to-date information on mental health conditions and how they affect the brain
  • Current treatments, including evidence-based therapies, medications and side effects
  • The impact of mental illness on the entire family

"The course gave me hope that it will be okay, that I am not alone, and reduced a lot of shame, guilt, and hopelessness. I see my wife now as someone who is ill and not as someone having a character flaw. The course helped me educate my children about their mother's illness and increased my compassion for my wife and others who have mental illness."
