Which class are you interested in leading?
NAMI CONNECTION RECOVERY SUPPORT GROUP
NAMI Connection is 90-minute recovery support group for people living with a mental health condition in which people learn from each other’s experiences, share coping strategies, and offer each other encouragement and understanding. NAMI Connection support groups are facilitated by persons who live with a mental health condition for other persons with any diagnosis who also live with a mental health condition.
The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) curriculum is a free 8-week, peer led, recovery education course open to any person with a mental health condition who wishes to live well in their recovery. The course offers a comprehensive understanding of mental health conditions with topics ranging from stigma to relapse prevention to advocacy and much more.
NAMI FAMILY TO FAMILY
The Family-to-Family (F2F) education program is a free 12-week education course for families, partners and friends of individuals with a mental health condition. This series of weekly classes is structured to help caregivers understand and support individuals with a mental health condition while maintaining their own well-being. The course is taught by trained family members who know what it’s like to have a loved one struggling with one of these brain disorders.
NAMI FAMILY & FRIENDS
NAMI Family & Friends is a 4-hour or 90-minute seminar that informs and supports people who have loved ones with a mental health condition. Participants learn about diagnoses, treatment, recovery, communication strategies, crisis preparation and NAMI resources. Seminar leaders have personal experience with mental health conditions in their families.
