NAMI Basics OnDemand

NAMI Basics OnDemand is a free, six-session online education course that was developed in response to the demand for a conveniently accessible version of NAMI Basics. Just like the in-person course, NAMI Basics OnDemand is geared toward the unique needs of parents, other caregivers and other family members who provide care for youth aged 22 or younger who are experiencing mental health symptoms. It is available online 24/7 and covers much of the same material as the in-person course.

NAMI Smarts for Advocacy
NAMI SMARTS for Advocacy is a hands-on advocacy training program that helps people living with mental illness, friends and family transform their passion and lived experience into skillful grassroots advocacy. This course teaches you how to share your story in a way that moves policy makers. The NAMI SMARTS for Advocacy course vastly enhances the power of mental health advocacy. Check our calendar for upcoming NAMI SMARTS online courses or contact us at peerpolicy.fellow@namitexas.org to be added to the list for future courses.
