NAMI Darke, Miami and Shelby Counties
NAMI Family-to-Family is a free, 8-session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people with mental health conditions. Research-based evidence shows that the program significantly improves the coping and problem-solving abilities of people closest to a person with a mental health condition.
NAMI Family-to-Family is taught by NAMI-trained family members with personal experience, and includes presentations, discussions and interactive exercises.
NAMI Family-to-Family provides information and strategies for taking care of the person you love. And most importantly, you'll learn that you're not alone. Recovery is a journey, and there is hope.
The group setting of NAMI Family-to-Family provides mutual support and shared positive impact -- experience compassion and reinforcement from people who understand your situation. Sharing your own experience may help others in your class.
Classes cover the following topics:
"The course gave me hope that it will be okay, that I am not alone and reduced a lot of shame, guild and hopelessness."
"Before I took the course, I felt alone and overwhelmed dealing with my daughter's mental illness. By taking this course, I have met others who are going through the same things I am and have learned about many resources that I never knew existed."
