NAMI Basics Care Group

Leader: Tara Yunker | | 513-777-9533 ext. 121

NAMI Basics is a FREE class that runs for six weeks and covers much of the same topics as our Family-to-Family program. NAMI Basics fosters learning, healing and empowerment among parents and families of children with emotional/mental/neurobiological disorders. A study published in the Journal of Child and Family Studies in August 2011 reported that the NAMI Basics program results in “significant improvement” for families when it comes to communication and coping skills.

Topics covered include:

  • How to navigate the educational system and get your child the help he or she needs
  • How a diagnosis is determined
  • Treatment options: Therapy, medication or both?
  • How to advocate for your child
  • What you need to know to navigate the juvenile justice system
  • Crisis prevention and relapse planning
  • Communicating with your loved one
  • Coping strategies; taking care of yourself

Free dinner and childcare are offered for all participants in this class. In addition to our own congregation, NAMI Basics is open to the community and we encourage you to help promote it to your family, neighbors and friends. There are several ways you can register for the classes:

  • Call 513-860-8396
