Family-to-Family

The NAMI Family-to-Family education program is offered at no cost to family members and loved ones of people with Major Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Substance Use Problems, Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, Panic Disorder and more.12 sessions are structured to help family members and loved ones support and learn about their loved one while maintaining their own well-being. Teaching teams are trained volunteer family members who understand the issues involved in having a loved one with a serious mental health condition in the family. SAMHSA, in their Family Psychoeducation Workbook for Practitioners and Clinical Supervisors, stated “…NAMI has promulgated the message that families who have long been viewed as part of the problem should now be considered part of the solution as partners in supporting recovery.”
