NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 8-week educational program for family, significant others and friends of people with mental illness. It is a designated evidenced-based program. This means that research shows that the program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to a person with a mental health condition. It facilitates a better understanding of mental health diagnoses, increases coping skills and empowers participants to become advocates for their family members.
NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members who have been there, and includes presentations, discussions and interactive exercises.
