This is a free, six-session program for military and veteran Service Member Families. The class is adapted from a national program designed to help family members understand and support a loved one living with a mental health condition, while maintaining their own well-being. This class specifically focuses on the unique needs of military and veteran families.

The course is taught by peers — other family members who have “been there” and understand what you may now be experiencing. This course is promoted by the Veterans Administration under a national Memorandum of Understanding with NAMI. Please register and a teacher will contact you prior to the start of class.
