Family-to-Family is a FREE twelve-week, evidenced-based, education program providing support and education to family members and friends of individuals who are living with mental illness. Classes are taught by NAMI*-trained family members and graduates of the program. In addition to learning about treatment strategies, and how to more effectively communicate with loved ones, many participants also find the emotional support they receive crucial during their loved ones’ times of illness and stress.

* NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness

Topics covered include:

  • Explanation of major brain disorders
  • The latest information about medications (including side effects and strategies for promoting medication adherence)
  • Information about the most effective treatments available
  • What to do in a crisis
  • Handling your loved one’s hospitalization and relapse
  • Problem solving and communication skills
  • Advocating for your loved ones; how to work with professionals
  • Taking care of yourself

By the end of the 12-week session, participants will have a packet of materials to keep for ongoing reference.
