The NAMI Family-to-Family Education Program is a 12-week course for families and close friends of adults with  mental illness.

This course is taught by trained volunteer family members     who are experienced in caring for a loved one with serious mental illness such as major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and other disorders.

Many family members describe this experience as lifechanging.  Join the thousands of families, just like yours, who have gained information, understanding, and support.

>  Learn about family responses to the trauma of mental illness

>  Receive current information on serious mental illnesses

Learn about symptoms, medications and side effects

>  Practice problem-solving skills and communication techniques
