Course offers help with mental illness
A free 12-session education program for family, partners, friends and significant others of adults living with mental illness is being offered by the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by trained family members and includes presentations, discussion and interactive exercises. Research shows that the program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of the people closest to an individual living with a mental health condition.
