As we listened that first night, we were reminded of a time when we sat where they were, desperately longing to hear the words, “I’ve been there, too, and I understand.”
As instructors, we’ve seen the transformation as families move forward, together – knowledgeable and empowered. We have the privilege of seeing families make incredible journeys. Will you join us?

NAMI provides nationally-developed education programs at no charge. Our local, trained, volunteers have lived experience with a serious mental health condition. 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.
