NAMI Family & Friends is a seminar that informs people who have loved ones with a mental health condition how to best support them. The seminar is led by trained people with lived experience of supporting a family member with a mental health condition. It’s also an opportunity to meet other people in similar situations and gain community support.


WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

The presenters will guide you through the following topics:

-Understanding diagnoses, treatment and recovery

-Effective communication strategies

-The importance of self-care

-Crisis preparation strategies

-NAMI and community resources

-And more!


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

“Hearing personal experiences and how relatable my experiences are to them was very helpful. Hearing specific strategies to communicate and specific traits that people with mental illness have.”

“I have a better understanding of how mental illness impacts the person affected…it was nice to hear the stories of the instructors and their paths. The [companion Ebook] handbook given has a lot of helpful information which I did not know about.”
