Get Back to You.
“I went into the class with an open mind and willingness to learn … What I didn’t anticipate was how I would feel – as if a weight had been lifted and how much more positive I could be about our situation.
“I walked away from the experience knowing the signs, symptoms and causes of mental health conditions, its treatments and how it affects our loved ones.
“I now know how to talk to and handle someone who may be emotionally distraught. Most important, I learned to better care for myself and cope as I realized I was not alone."
—Samantha, NAMI family program graduate
NAMI offers nationally-developed education programs at no cost to you. Many course graduates tell us their experience is life-changing. Our trained volunteer instructors have lived experience with mental health conditions. They understand the challenges you may now be facing.
Coping can often be difficult. NAMI provides caregivers, as well as persons living with a condition, effective communication and problem solving skills, and support. The goal is to keep individuals on the path to recovery.
NAMI's Signature Education programs are evidence-based, and are presented extensively throughout the country. Recent evaluations of these programs show that course participants gain a greater understanding of mental health conditions, cope much better, worry less and feel newly empowered to advocate for better treatment and services.
